“I misbehaved with my father-in-law so he beat me. Don’t want legal action”: Video assault victim





Video: The assault victim in the recent viral video of a man beating his daughter in-law in Punjab recently issued a video statement saying she does not want to press charges against her father-in-law and that she had been beaten because she had misbehaved with him.

The case against the father-in-law has been revoked after the victim being beaten in the video said that she was bea*en because she had misbehaved with her father in-law and the matter has been resolved, so she doesn’t want any legal action.

Earlier, an FIR was registered against the man for physically assaulting the woman after a video surfaced on social media. It turned out that the man had beaten his daughter-in-law after she failed to serve him food on time in Sheikhupura, Punjab.

The woman’s children and other house members could be seen trying to save her from domestic violence in the viral video but the father-in-law was continued with physical aggression, slappng & kicking the woman in question. In fact, it seems to be at the intervention of one of the children in the house, who pushes the man back, that the father-in-law stops assaulting the woman, as can be seen in the video.

This is not a one-off incident of abuse & assault against a woman. Such incidents are increasingly on the rise pointing towards an immediate need to raise social awareness amongst both men and women for women’s rights and gender equality.
