Wednesday, July 12, 2017 • Hindi Comments

A 50-year old woman was recently rescued by police from her maternal house in Goa from a dark room in which she was locked for 20 years for allegedly being mentally unstable; a woman’s rights NGO tipped off the police.

The house was occupied by her brother’s family, who kept her in a room without electricity. The brother said that the woman insisted on not wearing clothes and that her treatment was discontinued after a few years.

When the police found her, the floor was dirty with urine all around. Food was given through a slit in the door. She has now been admitted to the Institute of Psychiatry and Human Behaviour in Panaji. No arrests have been made.
