In a horrific video gone viral, a man in Delhi was seen striking his daughter-in-law with a brick over an alleged row regarding wanting to work and support her husband. The incident was reported from Northwest Delhi’s Prem Nagar and occurred earlier this week. The victim who suffered the horrific ordeal at the hands of her father-in-law for simply wanting to work was identified as Kajal.

According to the police, the argument between Kajal and her father-in-law escalated quickly, and the man resorted to violence, repeatedly hitting her on the head with a brick. The entire incident was captured on a video that went viral on social media, showing the violent attack and the woman’s desperate attempts to defend herself.

Locals who witnessed the attack intervened and rushed Kajal to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital, where she received over a dozen stitches for her head injury. The woman is currently undergoing treatment, but due to the severity of her injuries, she is not fit to give a statement to the police.

Upon investigation, the police identified the accused and registered a case against him. Officials stated that Kajal was attacked while she was going for a job interview, which infuriated her father-in-law. The woman’s parents alleged that the man beat her up because she wanted to work and support her family.

The Facts of the Matter

Despite India’s remarkable progress in recent years towards economic prosperity, gender discrimination and violence against women continue to be major societal issues that hinder progress and development.

The recent incident in Prem Nagar, Northwest Delhi, where a 26-year-old woman was severely injured by her father-in-law over a disagreement about her desire to work, is a poignant example of the struggles that women in India face in pursuing their career aspirations.

The entire incident was caught on CCTV, visuals of which are receiving outrage on social media.

What Does the Video Show

The video shows the daughter-in-law being confronted by the irked accused father-in-law. The two are seen engaging in a verbal dispute. When the woman tries to back off and move away from the enraged father, he strikes her with a brick. The woman, who appears to be hurt at the assault, stumbles a bit, which prompts her father-in-law to hit her once again with the same brick.

What makes the entire ordeal shocking, is that it transpired in public view, with one man sitting on his door step, choosing not to do anything when the woman is being assaulted by her father-in-law.
