Man who put ‘chastity lock’ on wife gets 10 years in jail

A man, who put a ‘chastity lock’ on his wife in a cruel, self-devised way, was awarded 10 years’ rigorous sentence by the court here today though the victim had retracted her statement during the trial.

Additional Sessions Judge Avnindra Kumar Singh also imposed a fine of Rs 1,000 on the accused Sohanlal Chouhan (38), a mechanic by profession, under sections 326 (causing grievous hurt) and section 498 (subjecting wife to cruelty) of the IPC. According to the prosecution, Sohanlal, over four years, ‘locked’ his wife’s private parts every time he left the home.
