Cops rescue woman ‘locked in toilet for over a year’

A 33-year old woman who was allegedly held captive by her husband in the toilet of their home for over a year has been rescued by protection officers in the north Indian state of Haryana.  Videos and images of the incident showed the woman in a dishevelled and malnourished state as she was carried from the rooftop toilet in the city of Panipat on Tuesday.  The woman's husband has been booked by the local police on charges of domestic violence and wrongful confinement, but is currently out on bail after a magistrate's court hearing the day after the rescue operation. He denied the accusations, telling that his wife was mentally unstable and opted to be in the toilet at her own will.
