A video of a woman mercilessly beating her 15-month-old child has gone viral. The incident caught on camera showed the woman kicking and strangulating her own child.
The video of the incident, which took place in Gop area of Puri district in Odisha, was sourced from a CCTV camera and prompted the woman's husband to file a complaint against her. Reports said that the man himself had posted the video on social media.
In the complaint lodged, the husband alleged that the woman frequently attacks her child in this manner. He has also alleged that his wife tortures his parents most of the time.
He told the police that he wanted to keep an eye on his wife and had thus installed the CCTV camera at his home, where the woman was caught beating the couple's son.
The woman has denied the allegations by the husband and has instead alleged that her husband and in-laws have always tortured her. They sometimes even don't give her food to eat. She added that she was going through some difficulties and due to hunger, had reacted by hitting her child.
The local police is carrying out an investigation in the case.
