A woman can never be wrong, a woman is always the victim. This is what our society often believes due to the number of cases registered for crimes against women. However, the other side, where a woman can be abusive, physical and also criminal, is totally overlooked by all. One such case from Rajasthan has been caught on camera and has gone viral on social media.
- A CCTV footage of a woman thrashing her elderly in-laws in Alwar went viral on Wednesday
- The woman is said to be a local patwari
- The video shows her beating up the elderly in-laws with slippers while her seven-year-old son is trying to stop his mother
- According to the elderly couple who are in their early 60s, their son worked in Delhi as a government teacher, while they (senior citizens) were staying in a rented accommodation since they did not get along with the daughter-in-law
- Around four months back, they had shifted out of their house to a rented one
- The accused’s father-in-law registered a complaint at the local police station after this incident
- According to the the father, he and his wife had gone to stay overnight with their daughter who lives closeby, since their grandchild was unwell
- When they were returning from the daughter’s home after a temple visit on Monday morning, the accused daughter-in-law who was along with her son at that time, saw them and started verbally abusing them
- She then followed them to their house and subsequently started thrashing the couple with slippers and slapping them
Prem Bahadur Singh, SHO, Shivaji Park police station said,
The elderly man has lodged a complaint with us against his daughter-in-law. During the assault, his wife also sustained injuries. We are investigating the matter.
The media has not reported arrest of this woman as yet. If a man would have been caught beating his in-laws in a similar fashion, he would have been behind bars without any investigation.
