'I want to sell my body' reads the handwritten sign in Chinese hung around the neck of the woman as she walks despairingly through the streets in Jiangxi province, China.
Head bowed, the woman appears to be wearing only her underwear and looks close to tears.
The shocking treatment was inflicted by her husband, who reportedly beat his.....
wife whilst under the influence of alcohol and forced her to walk shamefully through the streets.
The husband, named as 37-year-old Zhang, accused the woman of having an extra-marital affair.
Several photographs have emerged showing Wang Ni, 33, walking through the streets in Yushan county, situated in southeast China's Jiangxi province.
Driving in a large black 4x4 vehicle, the husband can be seen moving slowly behind the woman, watching her being humiliated.
The low quality photos show the unmarked car driving close beside the woman, caring little for the possible implications of his actions.
Since the shocking incident happened, an apology notice appeared in a local newspaper, written by the husband, Zhang.
According to local media reports, the couple have two daughters and had been married for 10 years.
Zhang worked long hours, running a property development company and is believed to have little time to see his wife, who lived in another city with their children.
Friends of the couple allegedly told local reporters that the husband was blamed his wife for their lack of a son in the family.
The apology letter, written in Chinese, seems to be an attempt to repair the damage between the married couple. It remains unclear what has happened to the man and woman.
