A neighbor of Devi, 70, had shot a video on Nov. 24 where her son was seen beating her at their home.
He filed a complaint at the police station against Kishore but later withdrew it “due to pressure” from neighbours, but on Saturday, December 10th, activist Kundan Srivastava filed another complaint and the accused was arrested and sent to Jail. He has been reportedly released on bail.
The videos posted on Facebook by Srivastava showed the elderly woman lying on the ground, wrapped in blood-stained clothes. She was taken to GTB hospital for treatment.
Acting on the complaint filed against victim’s son, he was arrested and sent to jail.
“We have booked the accused under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) and 352 (assault) of IPC,” a senior police officer said, adding that the case is under investigation.
