New Delhi: In an unusual punishment for disloyalty, a woman in Madhya Pradesh’s Jhabhua was made to walk while carrying her husband on her shoulders- as an act of penance after she was caught having an extra-marital affair.

The incident took place in Jhabhua, which is nearly 300km from Bhopal and a video of it has been released by news agency ANI.

The woman had reportedly run-off with her lover to some town in Gujarat and was brought back to her village on Saturday. She was then punished for indulging in an extra-marital affair.

While she paraded with her husband sitting on her shoulders, many villagers also danced and hooted along the way.

The police have now filed a complaint in the matter against at least a dozen people.
