Ambala: A woman in Haryana has been booked for thrashing her 80-year-old mother-in-law, after a video showing her cruel act went viral on social media recently.
The incident has taken place at Niwaz Nagar village in Narnaul town of Mahendragarh district. The matter came to light when a school girl captured the entire incident in her phone, in which the accused Kanta Devi can be seen grabbing her mother-in-law Chand Bai, a widow, by her hair.
Dear @mlkhattar Ji
This old woman is from village Niwaj Nagar, Narnaul Dist Mahendargarh
She is a proud Ex member of INA and a govt pensioner. She is regularly beaten by her daughter in law. This is heart-wrenching!
