Hyderabad police have registered a case against a TRS activist for physically assaulting his first wife when she protested at his residence. She was raising objections to his second marriage and tried confronting his second wife.
The incident happened on Sunday in Boduppal, Hyderabad and the TRS activist was identified as P Srinivas Reddy.
According to Times of India, the victim Sangeetha who had married Srinivas four years ago, left her home some time ago due to alleged harassment by Srinivas and his family members for giving birth to a girl child.
Later, Srinivas married another woman without giving divorce to Sangeetha, which she took objection to.
On Sunday, Sangeetha along with her daughter, mother and brothers came to Srinivasâ€™ house demanding justice. Sangeetha attempted to enter the house to confront his second wife.
However, Srinivas stopped her from entering inside and forced her out of the house. Soon, Srinivas and his family members ganged up and assaulted her in full public view outside his house.
A video reportedly taken by Srinivasâ€™ aides shows Sangeetha slapping Srinivas, and soon his family members and Srinivas thrash her by pulling her hair.
At one point, Srinivas can be seen pushing her and she lands face down on the ground.
Based on Sangeethaâ€™s complaint, Medipally police have booked a case under Section 324 (voluntarily cause hurt by dangerous weapons or any means).
Reportedly, Sangeetha had filed a case earlier also against Srinivas for domestic violence when he had allegedly harassed her.
In 2016, a TRS leader, Santosh from Suryapet was caught on video, assaulting and abusing a youth when he questioned the leader for allegedly taking money and promising a job. However, as the leader failed to honour the promise, the youth confronts the leader, following which he assaults him.
The video of the same went viral, invoking police action.
