BEHRAMPUR: In a virtual repeat of the Imrana case, a mother of four has been driven out of her village in Murshidabad district by a Muslim panchayat after being allegedly raped by a local man over three months ago.
Imranaâs case from U.P. and Ayesha Azmiâs case from London are very much in mediaâs glare these days.
