LUCKNOW, India (AP) -- A man in northern Indian will be publicly slapped 51 times as punishment after village elders found him guilty of raping a neighbor who is deaf and mute, a village chief said Friday.

The elders stepped in to review the case because local police had failed to arrest the accused man after a complaint was filed by the victim's husband, village head Badr-ul Hasan told The Associated Press.

"Police told us that since the woman is deaf and mute, she is not able to narrate the incident," Hasan said.

A village court made up of five elders heard from both sides on Wednesday. It found the man guilty, fined him 5,000 rupees (US$110, euro90), and ordered he be publicly slapped with an open hand 51 times, he said.

"We can't do more than that. The village court doesn't have powers to arrest anyone," said Hasan. "By public slapping, the court wants to put (him) to shame."

Communicating through hand signals, the woman, a mother of three, said she was raped in a field last Sunday when returning home from work in Rampur, 330 kilometers (205 miles) northwest of Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh.

Village courts generally settle land disputes and other disagreements among residents, not criminal offenses.

But many rape cases go unreported in India, especially in villages, since women fear further harassment by police, who often work with corrupt local politicians and landlords.

Police inspector C.N. Singh said officers were still investigating her complaint.

"A case will be registered only if police find proof that the woman was raped. We are inquiring from children who were playing in the field then," Singh said.

If convicted by a state criminal court, the man could be sentenced to death.

Publicly... slapped? Interesting punishment... I guess... That woman must not have been very popular.

Raping a deaf mute! He doesn't diserve just death! They should cut his ears off and his teeth broken out and have salt rubbed into the wounds. Then they can kill him.

No. That's not nearly bad enough. You forgot the part where they cut off his dick and force him to give himself a decapitated blowjob.

Wouldn’t “an eye for an eye” justice demand that he first have his ears and tong cut off (in order to make him a deaf mute), then to have some guy violently rape him up the ass? :hardgay:

Not that im in favor of such things, just stating an idea… :rolleyes:

how did they find out?

Apparently he didn’t try too hard to hide it…

Because the police couldn't. Reading is your friend.

At least he didn't get off completely free.

I didn't ask why the police didn't have it, I asked why the village council did.

what you're saying comes down to

Police: "hey we have this guy who raped a deaf mute, but we can't do anything, so we'll give him to the other people who can't do anything"

Village elders: "whatever, we can at least have him slapped repeatedly"

police: "okay"

That system is retarded. Basically, if they can't do anything, somebody else should be able to take care of it, and if not then the law system is ineffective so they might as well just cut his balls off and be done with it.

If the police in america said "We can't do anything, there is no proof."

What happens to the man who committed the crime?

He will be shamed, and everyone will forever believe that he did it. It is better than nothing.

That only works when there is evidence. You only need evidence for an arrest, not proof. There appears to be some evidence. Furthermore, your idea is a double edged sword. If a man is innocent, but he is tried and found not guilty, he may still be subject to shame. An innocent man can be damaged by a false accusation, and a guilty man can try to make millions off of his story (no references to former Bills players intended)
