Mentally Ill Woman kept in outhouse since Reagan was President, Orissa
A 43-year-old Indian woman has been rescued after officials said she had been locked up by her family in a single room for more than 25 years. Her family members in the eastern Indian state of Orissa said she was mentally ill and had to be kept apart because of her "wild behaviour".
Annapurna Sahu was confined in an abandoned outhouse - only a few feet high and without proper flooring.
The family said she was not mistreated and was given food and water regularly.
Eyewitnesses present during the rescue operation in the town of Dhenkanal, 100km (62 miles) from state capital, Bhubaneswar, said Ms Sahu was living in inhumane conditions.
She was reportedly naked when she was found.
