None of the villagers helped the woman and filmed the entire episode on their mobile phones. A video of the incident, which occurred on Sunday, has since gone viral.
According to her husband Dhuma, Dhanna had gone missing on October 28 and a few days later was found at another man's house, the police said. Dhuma and his family then persuaded her to return home.
However, once back a family panchayat was held in the village where she was told that she could stay with Dhuma only if she walked two kilometres carrying her husband on her shoulders. She accepted the punishment out of fear.
The woman's husband had also filed a complaint stating that his wife had "eloped" with another man. However, she was "brought back" to the village, dominated by Bhil community, after "mediation" on Saturday, said Pitol police post in charge Naveen Pathak.
