Emerging online as an appalling incident of ill-treatment against in-laws, a woman in Bijnor, Uttar Pradesh, was arrested for brutally assaulting her ailing 70-year-old mother-in-law.
The gruelling one-minute footage was captured in a CCTV camera where the woman is repeatedly seen trying to strangulate the mother before assaulting her on the head with a brick. Sangeeta also tries to pull the elderly woman down from her bed and electrocute her with a water-heating rod.
According to Kundan Srivastava, the social activist who shared the video on his page, the daughter-in-law, Sangeeta Jain, was married to Sandip Kumar Jain for seven years and was soon-to-be divorced. Sangeeta Jain's husband had previously filed many complaints against the police stating that his mother was being subjected to harassment. The activist asked CM Akhilesh Yadav to directly intervene in the matter.
Sangeeta Jain is also accused of filing false dowry harassment and marital rape cases against Sandip Kumar Jain.
Sangeeta Jain has been booked by the police under Section 307 of the Indian Penal Code for allegedly attempting to murder Rajrani Jain, her mother-in-law.
