A case against the man and his mother was registered the same day and both suspects have been missing since then, police said.
“The incident took place on July 14 in the village of Arsena below the Sikandra Police Station in Agra. A video of the incident surfaced on social media platforms on Wednesday,” Anand Kumar Shahi, the head of the Sikandra Police Station, told PTI.
“The man in the video was identified as Shyambihari, the husband of the victim, Kusuma Devi,” he said.
Shahi said Shyambihari and his mother, Barfa Devi, were booked under sections 323 (voluntarily hurting), 504 (deliberately abusive), 342 (wrongful detention) and 354 (unjust detention of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code ( IPC).
In her complaint, Kusuma Devi had alleged that she had been beaten by her husband and mother-in-law on July 14 and threatened not to complain about the incident to the police.
“When they heard that I had gone to the police, my husband tied me to a power pole and beat me. The video of the incident was recorded by the neighbors,” she said.
