Pune: In a shocking incident, a 20-year old woman in Nashik was abandoned by her husband for failing the ‘virginity’ test.
According to the husband, the woman didn’t bleed on the first night of her wedding. “She is not a virgin; she didn’t bleed after our first intercourse,” the husband said.
The woman was later asked by the Panchayat to undergo the virginity test. The girl in her defence said that she was planning to join Police force and it was due to her rigorous exercise and training for the police examination that she did not bleed.
The Panchayat invalidated the marriage saying that the girl was not a virgin.
The victim attempted to lodge a police complaint against her husband but she was stopped by her father, thinking that involving police would be a shame for his family.
Maharashtra State Commission for Women has ordered a probe into the matter and has requested the police to intervene.
