A video that went viral on social media shows a man from Tamil Nadu getting beaten up by a bunch of people including two women.
With the clip going viral, the backstory behind the video is now out in the open. The man in blue has been identified as Dinesh - a ‘serial husband’, who was attacked by two of his wives for abandoning them and attempting to marry a third time.
According to local news reports, 26-year old Dinesh, a native of Nehru Nagar in Sulur in Coimbatore district, got married to Priyadarshini, his first wife back in 2016. The duo who lived together for only a few weeks soon split up as Priyadarshini allegedly faced physical torture and harassment from her husband and moved back to her hometown of Tiruppur.
Cut to 2019, Dinesh concealed the fact that he was a married man and married Anupriya from Karur. This marriage too ended soon enough with Anupriya leaving Dinesh after allegedly facing similar harassment.
In September, news reached both Anupriya and Priyadarshini that the man who betrayed them was looking to wed a third time by registering in a matrimonial site. The duo who were living with their respective parents, visited Dinesh in his workplace in Coimbatore, along with their families. When Dinesh'a company refused to let them meet him, the two wives staged a protest outside his offiece. Soon enough, Dinesh stepped outside and this led to an altercation with the group attacking him, as seen in the video.
Both women have told the media that they faced physical harassment from Aravind and had even reportedly staged a protest outside his place of work.
Before the situation worsened, the Coimbatore police reportedly intervened and took Aravind away for questioning. While a formal complaint was not taken, the police spoke to the trio and let them go. There has also been concern that the man may have sustained serious injuries if the angry crowd had not been stopped by people around.
