Locals tipped off the district’s women’s’ protection officer, Rajni Gupta, who alerted police and travelled with them to the latrine, which was on the side of their house.

On arrival they found the woman lying on the floor of the toilet.

‘She was so weak that she could not even walk,’ Gupta told the Hindustan Times. ‘She ate eight chapattis when we gave her food’.
