New Delhi: Taking place in Uttar Pradesh, a woman from Bareilly was caught on camera severely beating her one-year-old child. The husband had suspected that the wife was ill-treating the child in his absence. After the incident, the husband registered a complaint with the police.
“I have often noticed swelling and bruises on my child’s body. I tried to know about it from my wife but she use to term them normal accidents. To find the truth, I installed CCTV cameras in my house when she was away,” Deepak Chaturvedi, the husband of the woman said.
The accused, who has been named as Poonam, was married to Deepak for over five years. Deepak alleged that his wife did not consider him her husband and was a threat to the life of the child.
