A video, which was shot last year in May, surfaced on social media recently and an inquiry was launched into the incident.
"I was picked up by my wife's relatives as they were not happy with our court marriage. They thrashed me and shot a video of the incident in May 2019," said Ikramuddin.
Mr Ikramuddin also alleged that no action has been taken by the police as his wife's younger brother is a constable. "No action is taken by the police as my wife's brother is a cop."
