In a horrific incident, a teacher in Jodhpur was arrested after being caught on CCTV brutally thrashing his wife & teenage daughter. The incident was reported from Phalodi town in Jodhpur, Rajasthan and the accused was identified as Kailash Suthar, a teacher who works at a private school in Jodhpur. Not only did the accused thrash his wife and teenage daughter, but he also made her wife sit semi-clothed under the sun.
In the now gone viral video, the accused can be seen beating his wife relentlessly inside the house. In the horrific altercation, where the woman tries to resist the man and tries to defend herself, he overpowers her repeatedly and thrashes her in the presence of his daughter.
He further makes her sit half-clothed in the sun and eats his food. Meanwhile, the wife can be seen crying in agony and agitation – having her dignity and physical self – both being assaulted by her husband.
After the video of the incident went viral, the cops took cognizance of the matter. Although the wife had not filed any complaint against her husband, the police arrested the accused for disturbing peace. During interrogation, the accused confessed that his wife is mentally ill.
Earlier in May, another video had emerged from Rajasthan where a woman was seen brutally thrashing her husband with a cricket bat.
The Facts of the Matter

The incident was reported from Jodhpur’s Phalodi town and the accused was identified as Kailash Suthar.
