Panties and a Baseball Bat: Indian Woman Protests Dowry Tradition

Taking it to the streets:

Clad only in her lingerie and armed with a baseball bat, Chauhan finds this the best way to get the police’s attention to solve her post-marital life issues. Chauhan apparently has registered complaints against her in-laws — husband Pratapsinh, brother-in-law Ranchhod, in-laws Bhavdeep and Mangooben, who have been harassing her both mentally and physically.To avoid harassment, she had been living alone since last year. Yet the harassment continued. “I had complained at least four times against them. But the police did nothing. I had to get the police attention anyhow,” she said.
