SAMBHAL (UP): A 45-year-old woman was allegedly gang raped by two persons, who made a videp clip of the act and circulated it, a senior officer said today.

According to Additional Superintendent of Police V K Mishra, the woman alleged that on May 20 when she was alone at her residence, her neighbours and accused Mehndi Hassan and

Fareed raped her and made a video clip of the incident.

Mishra said as per the woman's complaint the accused later circulated the video clip to others, including her son.

A case was lodged late last evening and the duo has been arrested, the ASP said.

Though the plot allotted to the project is barren, 'Kudumbashree' plans to convert it into a complete 'green' village with eco-friendly houses, biogas plants and vegetable


The engineers of Kudumbashree Construction will also bake eco-friendly bricks, using soil of the place for construction.

Each house will have kitchen and terrace gardens. One biogas plant each will be set up for a unit of 10 houses. Anganwadies and trading shops to market and sell agricultural

and other products made by tribals are also on cards.    

A number of agencies including  COSTFORD, a non-profit making voluntary organisation specialising in cost-effective architecture, the state Scheduled Tribes Development

Department and Agricultural Department have offered support to the venture.     

Valsala Kumari said the tribals to be rehabilitated in the village would be shifted to the site during the time of construction and their suggestions would be sought.

"We expect the project to generate further ideas. It is not just Kudumbashree's entry into the construction sector, but also an effort to create a complete ambience for

environment-friendly life," she said.     

Kudumbashree is the poverty alleviation programme of the Kerala government, launched in 1998. It was conceptualised as a movement to eradicate poverty through empowering women and community action under Local Self Governments.     

The programme has over 37 lakh members and covers more than 50 per cent of households in Kerala.
