On Tuesday, a 32-year-old woman, who was chained, tortured and held captive by her husband in East Delhi’s Trilokpuri, was rescued by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), officials said.

The DCW said that the woman had been married for the last 11 years and was chained and held captive by her husband in her own house for over six months.

As per the DCW, the woman was kept in a room which had no fan and an unpleasant smell was coming out of it as she was made to lie in her excreta. The commission added that she was tortured and beaten so brutally that it had affected her mental health.

DCW members Firdos Khan and Kiran Negi reached the location along with DCW chief Swati Maliwal, after getting information about the woman from the Commission’s Mahila Panchayat team. The team found the woman lying on the floor of her residence with her feet tied with iron chains.
