When I die, how will my family be affected?
The family of a 14-year-old girl in India’s northeast, who was beaten by her parents for not wearing a burqa, have filed a court petition seeking compensation, saying they were targeted because of their religion.
The girl was beaten with sticks and the parents, who had moved from Pakistan, had also been beaten.
The girl’s family said the family has filed the petition for a compensation of 2,000 rupees ($280).
The girl, who suffers from epilepsy, had her eye gouged out and her nose broken when her parents attacked her.
They are also alleged to have injured her with the stick that was used to beat her.
The family is now seeking the compensation for their daughter’s “pain and suffering” and for the protection of her rights, a spokesperson for the family told the Times of Indian.
According to the parents’ petition, the girl was taken away by her mother and a friend from their house to a field, where she was beaten repeatedly.
The parents then returned the girl to the house, where they were beaten again, the petition said.
The parents’ lawyers, who filed the case on behalf of the girl’s father, have demanded a court order granting compensation to the family.
The father of the 13-year old girl was also beaten in the attack.
The case has been registered under the Prevention of Cruelty to Children Act.
The court is hearing the petition.
