Oct 26, 2018-
Police on Thursday arrested three persons for their alleged involvement in force-feeding faeces to an elderly woman at Udayapurgadhi Rural Municipality-5 in Udayapur district.
A police team deployed from the District Police Office detained Bakte Rai, 50, his wife Garbhi, 47, and their son Dev Bahadur, 32, for assaulting 75-year-old Reshma Rai and force-feeding her faeces on Tuesday.
The accused had assaulted the woman after she complained to them about their stray cattle eating crops in her field.
The victim, who suffered injuries in her right eye and other regions of her body, is receiving treatment at Udayapur District Hospital.
“They assaulted me and forced me to eat faeces when I asked them not to leave their cattle stray,” the victim said.
Police said they are investigating into the case after the Udayapur District Court remanded the accused trio into custody.
