Kolar: Woman’s hand burnt in fidelity test | Bengaluru News – Times of India


KOLAR: In a bizarre incident, a woman’s hand was burnt after her husband allegedly forced her to take a fidelity test that involved lighting camphor on the palm.
The incident occurred at Kolar‘s Veerenahalli village in Vemagal police limits. Though it happened some five days ago, the woman did not complain to police fearing backlash from her husband Ananda. However, cops got involved and are searching for the husband following the intervention of KM Sandesh, president of Ambedkara Seva Samithi.
According to Shivaraj, circle inspector, Vemagal, the couple was married around 14 years ago and has a son. However, Ananda always suspected his wife’s fidelity. Five days ago, he forced her to light camphor on her palm. The illiterate woman promptly followed his order and sustained burn injuries. As the news of the incident spread, the accused fled the village. Following the complaint by the victim on Friday, police have taken up an investigation.
