"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 in such cases," said Sandip.
The police registered a case under section 307 (attempt to murder) under the IPC and have launched an investigation in the matter.
The victim, who is reportedly 70 years old, recalled the horror she faced, “My daughter in-law attacked me brutally. That day she came from the kitchen and started slapping me. She almost strangled me to death. She even hit my head with a brick. I don't know why she did this. I never interfere in anything”.
Activist Kundan Srivastava had shared the video on his Facebook page and appealed to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to take strict action against the Sangeeta.
In the post, Srivastava described Sangeeta as a "cruel woman" who filed false dowry harassment and marital rape cases against Sandeep.
Sangeeta had some differences with her husband Sandeep Jain and mother-in-law and their divorce case is pending in a local court, according to police
Sangeeta had also lodged a complain against Sandeep under the Dowry Act, according to SHO Nehtaur, Chandra Kant Yadav.
Sandeep was sent to police custody for a day on January 4 on charges of dowry harassment.
Debjit Chowdhry, ADG (Law and Order) said, "We will take legal action against her. Already an FIR has been registered and our police officers have visited the site. We are looking at the CCTV footage and further legal action will be taken".
