Panchayat speaks up for woman in UP

Sanjay Pandey, Lucknow, Dec 3, 2012, DHNS:

In a rare order, tells husband to accept her and daughter

Displaying a rare change of heart, a panchayat in Uttar Pradesh’s Sant Ravidas Nagar district has come to the rescue of a woman whose husband had allegedly cheated her and married another woman.

She had a two-year old daughter by him.

The panchayat held at Moolapur village on Sunday warned Vipin Misra and his family to accept Dimple, a resident of Maharashtra’s Ulahasnagar district. Vipin had married her in court a few years ago after a brief affair.

“The youth’s family will face social boycott if it does not accept Dimple,” said Shiv Shyam Yadav, the pradhan of Moolapur.

Elders from the nearby villages also attended the panchayat. The panchayat delivered its verdict after examining the documents furnished by Dimple in support of her marriage with Vipin.

“Dimple has all the evidence in the form of letters, pictures. She has proved that she had married Vipin,” Yadav said.

It also directed Vipin and his family to look after his second wife as well. “Since the second wife cannot be blamed, Vipin will have to look after her also,” the panchayat ordered.

Dimple was accompanied by her Facebook friends who have been helping her and her daughter to get their dues.

She and her Facebook friends also sat on a dharna in front of Vipin Misra house demanding that she be allowed in, according to reports. Vipin and his family members had already fled from there.

 After spending a few hours there, she left, but vowed to return again shortly. “I will continue to fight until I get what is mine and my marriage is given due recognition,” she said.

Local officials have also pledged all help to Dimple.

She had met Vipin a few years ago while he was working at Ulhasnagar. They married and had a two-year-old daughter.

Later, Vipin allegedly ditched Dimple and fled to his village and married again, concealing his first marriage.
