A shocking video is going viral on social media, of a woman in Uttar Pradesh brutally thrashing and strangling her mother-in-law.
The video which was shared by Kundan Srivastava, a social activist, on his Facebook page, identifies the woman as Sangeeta Jain.
The video, just over a minute long, shows Sangeeta beating her sick and helpless 70-year-old mother-in-law first with bare hands and then using a cloth to make a noose around her neck. She even tries to pull the old woman down from her bed and uses a stone to hit her on the head. Sangeeta is also seen trying to shock her with a water heating rod.
In a long status accompanying the video, Kundan says that Sangeetha, who has filed a 'false' dowry harassment case on her husband, has tried to kill her mother-in-law many times.
The video was captured on January 5, through a CCTV camera which was installed in the room.
The daughter-in-law has been taken into custody since.
