A brutal incident of a woman beating up her mother-in-law has left the Internet in a shock. It emerged on Wednesday, that the culprit has been arrested from the Clifton area of Karachi after the video went viral.
The video shows the accused, Afshan torturing her elderly mother-in-law. It was recorded by an employee at the house, probably the elderly’s caretaker. The caretaker informed her husband, Ghulam Nabi, about what his wife had been doing to his mother in his absence.
Following the incident, Ghulam Nabi filed a complaint against his wife. In the FIR report, he stated that he had married Afshan some seven years ago and had a five-year-old son. He also said that his mother, Razia was old and he had hired a caretaker for her.
This wasn’t the first time
When the caretaker informed him about the monstrous attitude of his wife towards his 70-year-old mother, he remembered all those times his wife had lied to him about the bruises.
“I didn’t have any idea about what was happening with my mother in my absence. Often when I found the torture marks on my mother’s body and asked my wife about them, she always told me that the marks were because of illnesses.”
The caretaker had recorded a video of the accused on her mobile phone and she later showed it to Ghulam Nabi. She further told him that Afshan’s mother used to instigate her to beat up her mother-in-law.
