Lucknow: A woman in Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh has been arrested on charges of attempt to murder after a shocking video, uploaded by a social activist went viral on Monday, which showed her brutally beating up and torturing her elderly mother-in-law.
The video was uploaded by social activist Kundan Srivastava on his Facebook page and was supported by an appeal to CM Akhilesh Yadav to take action against the woman named Sangeeta Jain.
The video, captured on January 5, shows Sangeeta brutally assaulting 70-year-old Rajrani Jain, with a brick and trying to strangle her with a rope. “My daughter in-law attacked me brutally. That day she came from kitchen and started slapping me. She almost strangled me to death. She even hit my head with brick. I don’t know why she did this. I never interfered in anything happening in the family,” told the victimized Mother in law.
Sangeeta’s husband Sandip Kumar Jain informed that he installed CCTV camera in their home to catch her red-handed as she had been assaulting his parents for quite some time.
“This has been happening for quite some time now. She used to assault and abuse my parents very often. I complained about her but no one used to listen to me. Then after waiting for two years, I installed a CCTV camera expecting that she will fix her ways, but she didn’t. That day she crossed all the limits. I installed the camera to unmask her since the law is on the woman’s side when these types of cases are concerned,” said Sandip.
In the Facebook post, Kundan Srivastava described Sangeeta as a “cruel woman” who filed false dowry harassment and marital rape cases against Sandeep. Kundan also accused the police of doing little because these attacks were committed by a woman and tagged the official page of Uttar Pradesh chief minister to his post.
Sangeeta has been arrested under IPC Section 307- Attempt to murder.
