An Indian woman has married the man who she claims raped her, saying she had "no other option," but to marry him she disclosed to the media.

Rape is one of the most brutal, humiliating, and agonizing experience any woman had to endure if she falls a victim to it, but this Indian woman has “willingly” entered into matrimony with the person she had accused of raping her after her traumatic experience.

 In an interview with BBC's Hindi Service her father said that the family was also considering withdrawing their complaint against the man, who has been freed on bail.

The woman has previously told local media that she was a willing participant in the marriage.

Rape and other sexual crimes is a taboo subject in Indian society.

Victims find it difficult to marry and are often blamed for inviting the attacks on themselves.

The woman's father told the BBC he had no choice other than to marry his daughter to the alleged attacker.

"Her whole life would have been ruined. And we would have to put up with the embarrassment forever," he said.

The wedding took place inside Jharpada jail on 28 January in Bhubaneswar, the state capital of Orissa, where the man had been held since his arrest last year on rape charges.

The judge ordered the prison officials to organise the wedding after the alleged victim and attacker filed a joint petition in court, requesting permission to marry.

"It was my own decision to marry him. Our parents also agreed to it. I am optimistic that we will have a smooth life," the woman was quoted as saying by The Times of India at the time of the ceremony.

The groom was freed on bail and the couple is now living with the bride's family.

Sexual crimes in India have been in the spotlight since a student died after being gang-raped in Delhi in December 2012.
