Woman killed for raising voice against sexual harassment of her daughters

A woman was killed, while five members of her family were injured after they were attacked by a group of four people, for objecting to alleged sexual harassment of her daughters in Uttar Pradesh. The incident was reported from Aurangabad village in the state, police said. 

Commenting on the incident, the police said the accused had entered the house of Mudassir under the Auraiyee police station area late on Tuesday. 

They brutally beat up the members of the family, Superintendent of Police (SP) Rajesh S said.

Some locals used to pass comments at Mudassir's daughters to which he had objected on Tuesday evening, the SP said, adding that the attack took place after that.

Mudassir's wife, Bilkis (45), had sustained injuries to the head and died Wednesday morning while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Varanasi, SP Rajesh said.

The injured were later admitted to a hospital. 

An FIR was lodged against the four accused and two of them were arrested, the SP said. They were identified as Nizam and his son Riyaz. 

Mudassir claimed that he had earlier complained to the police about the harassment but to no avail.
