A teenager, whose husband was away in Russia for further studies, was held captive for a year by her brother-in-law who even impregnated her.
Tamil Nesan reported that she was rescued on Saturday after she managed to send out a text message seeking help from the police.
She managed to get the handphone with the help of a neighbour's child.
The 19-year-old, who married a man from an Ahmedabad village in Madhya Pradesh, was left with her husband's elder brother when he left for Russia. The brother, however, allegedly abused her physically.
Police said four people, including the brother-in-law, had been arrested. The girl was sent back to her family after a medical check-up.
