In a stomach-churning incident, a man tied his wife to the ceiling fan and brutally beat her with a belt. He even filmed the entire incident and sent the video to his brother-in-law threatening that he will further torture her if his demands of dowry were not met.
The incident is from Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur district, where the husband wanted her to ask for Rs 50,000 from her parents. When she refused to do so, she was tortured and beaten till she fell unconscious.
Talking to ANI, the woman said that her husband beat her with a belt and when she fell unconscious he tied her hands to the ceiling using her dupatta.
"He thrashed me brutally for 3-4 hours after which I fell unconscious. When I re-gained my consciousness, both my hands were tied to the ceiling," said the woman.
A case has been registered under relevant sections of Dowry Prohibition Act against the victim's husband and four other people of his family and investigation has been initiated.
While no arrest has been made so far as the accused and his family members are absconding, the police took cognizance of the video and responded. After seeing the video, Sumit Shukla, Circle Officer of Shahjahanpur said, "We saw the viral video in which a man is mercilessly beating his wife. A case has been registered and efforts are on to arrest the accused."
