On March 30, 2009 Rhupa was imprisoned for fifteen days along with another woman named Kamla who was 77 years old and five other children. Rhupa, who is 28 years old was pregnant at time with her son, Nibu. Everyone was starved, tortured and put into solitary confinement. The women were severely electrocuted on a daily basis, bamboo sticks were shoved down their throats and their children’s anytime they asked for food. Rhupa was especially beaten repeatedly on her lower back. Her child Nibu has many health problems due to the incident, it is obvious that he is not developing normally and has very slow reactions and reflexes for a twelve month year old baby.
