While rapes have become a national concern for India, a rather shocking case came to fore in Mathura.
It is said that a sixty year old woman sleeping outside her house came under attack.
The incidence is of Friday when a man apparently in a inebriated state tried to rape her.
The woman opposed but the accused threatened her not to report the matter and fled the spot.
The matter was eventually reported to the local panchayat which ruled that woman is entitled to beat the accused up with slippers.
The woman was allowed to do so in front of onlookers and the matter was declared sorted.
The incident is of village within the Mant police station area.
The accused is said to be in his fifties.
