In a bizarre and outrageous ruling by a village council in Rajasthan, a woman whose husband ran off with the neighbour’s wife has been ordered to live with the abandoned man or pay him compensation

After his wife and two children disappeared with his neighbour Kalulal Meghwal, Rajendra Meghwal approached the council in the desert state of Rajasthan for help, a case the police is investigating.

Kalulal’s wife Mamta has alleged that the council or khap panchayat has ordered her to pay Rajendra 300,000 rupees ($4,775) in compensation for her husband’s actions or move in with Rajendra.

The officers have started questioning council members in Bundi district after Mamta filed a harassment complaint with the police.

Local police officer Sanjay Kumar told AFP, “The woman was not present in the khap meeting but she complained to us that she has been asked to pay money or live with Rajendra.”

It was unclear whether the woman was asked to live with him as his spouse or as his employee in the house.

Branded as ‘kangaroo courts’ by their critics, Khap panchayats have no legal recognition and have been held blamed for sanctioning honour killings of women, public beatings and other harsh punishments for perceived crimes.
