A shocking video that went viral through the day today was that of an 82-year-old woman being thrashed by her daughter-in-law. Initially while several people tweeted about the same, it was later found that the woman belongs to Sector 23 of Sonipat in Haryana. Here’s what happened.
The daughter-in-law, who is an auxiliary nurse-midwife (ANM), in Sonipat was caught on camera beating and abusing her old mother-in-law, Sukhdei. The fully abled daughter-in-law physically violated the elderly woman, because the older woman was unable to do household chores.
This elderly woman seen in the video, is barely able to walk on her own, yet her daughter-in-law has used her might to force her do the household work. Incidentally, the grandchildren who were present at home used their presence of mind and recorded the video.

Since the newspaper report says @police_haryana has initiated action, I would also request that the police ensures that the old day has a mobile to call the police when she needs help & they check up on her daily. The old lady is too vulnerable. 🙏https://t.co/lhjKJ1kuPI https://t.co/dNQoefWpbE
