A 20-year-old woman was hacked to death in Kaushambi district’s Dherha village on Monday, 20 November.

Details: Mahewaghat Police has sent the body of the deceased for post-mortem.

  • Since the incident, the atmosphere in the village has been tense.

  • Additional police forces have been deployed in the wake of the murder.

How it happened: According to the villagers, the woman was returning home after taking the cattle grazing on Monday evening when she allegedly got into an argument with two brothers, murder-accused Ashok and rape-accused Pawan.

  • After a spat broke out, it is alleged that the men brutally attacked the woman with a sharp object.

Why it matters: Villagers told The Quint that Pawan had been accused of raping the deceased victim three years ago.
