Victim was not the one who decapitated the rapist: Claim
Nevin Y said he killed Nurettin Gider (pictured) after the latter allegedly raped her. DHA photoA woman who killed and decapitated her alleged rapist was not alone in the crime, relatives of the killed man said, according to a report in daily Vatan today.
Nevin Y. tossed the severed head of Nurettin Gider into the village square of Koruyaka village in the southern province of Isparta, claiming that Gider had raped and impregnated her.
The murder victim's uncle Recep Öncü said the rape allegations were not correct and that Nevin Y. and Gider had had an ongoing affair for the last three years despite being married to others. "We do not condone what my nephew had done. But we are against the efforts to portray him as a rapist," Öncü said.
Nevin Y.'s father pressured both his daughter and Gider to end the illicit affair. "Nevin Y.'s relatives threatened [Nurettin Gider] to cut off his head and put it in the village square if he did not leave the village. But Nurettin refused to leave and his wife had to accept the affair," Öncü said.
Öncü asked why Nevin Y. would not go to the police if she had been raped for seven months.
"Nevin Y. killed Nurettin, but someone else cut his head off," Öncü said.
