A shocking video has emerged from Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor town where a woman is seen mercilessly beating up her 70-year-old mother-in-law. The family claims that this torture has been going on for years while the daughter-in-law says that she this is a fake video and that she is a victim of dowry harassment by her husband and in-laws. While these claims and counter-claims emerge, NDTV's Sunetra Choudhury asks whether the dowry laws in our country are biased towards the daughter-in-law. We also discuss the need for laws in cases of elderly abuse as this video also reflects the harsh reality of increasing crimes against the senior citizens in the country.
