BENGALURU: A Tamil Nadu police sub-inspector allegedly beat up his daughter on the street in Bengaluru. The pictures of the incident posted on the Facebook by two young women.
The images on the Facebook shows the man, the policeman from Madauri, dragged his daughter onto the street, slapped her and kicked her repeatedly in full public view but no one came to help. Around 50 people just stood and watched the horror unfold without intervening.
The two girls who were passing by saw the merciless beating and decided to stop it. They pushed the father away and tried to take the victim away but the man refused to let the brave girls take the victim away.
"Barely a few days since #IndiasDaughter stirred the world, we witnessed another shameful incident in Bangalore today," said Nivedita Chakraborty in her Facebook post which has been liked and shared by over thousand five hundred people.
While narrating the incident, Nivedita said "Me and my friend Archana were shocked to see a girl aged about 25 being beaten by a strong well-built man, with around 50 people standing on the street and simply watching."
"We rushed out of the car, pushed the man back in an attempt to loosen his grip on the girl. He was grabbing the girl by her hair, slapping her, kicking her in the groin as she fell down on the road," said Nivedita.
"Archana started pushing the man while I tried untangling the girl's hair from his fingers. Once freed, we along with the girl sought refuge inside our car," she said, adding that the man sat down on the car bonnet, refusing to let us drive.
"We called the police who came after 30 minutes and took the family away to Ulsoor Police station," she added.
Police said someone had called the control room and informed about the incident. "Our men had gone there, but the parents and daughter left saying they will sort out the issue. No complaint was registered."
