Bed-ridden elderly thrashed by daughter-in-law in UP, video goes viral


A video showing a woman trying to kill her bed-ridden mother-in-law in Uttar Pradesh has gone viral on social media.

The video shows the woman named Sangeeta Jain assaulting her 70-year-old sick mother-in-law and trying to strangulate her.

The incident is believed to have taken place in Uttar Pradesh’s Bijnor district, where the husband had recently installed a CCTV camera in his mother’s bedroom.

Sangeeta also tries to pull the hapless woman down from the bed and hits her with a stone on the head.

Users on Facebook, where this video was first posted, have appealed to the state chief minister Akhilesh Yadav to take urgent action against Jain.

Bijnor SP Subhash Baghel said that the woman caught beating mother in law has been arrested and will be produced before court.

Jain, for her part, told the ANI that video was doctored to harass her as part of a conspiracy.

A similar video of an assault by a daughter-in-law against an old lady had gone viral late last year.
