Last week, shocking visuals of a man being tied and dragged behind a tempo went viral on social media. Surat Police has now arrested the accused for tying his brother-in-law to the tempo and dragging him for nearly half a kilometre in a fit of rage. The matter came to light from Kadodara in Gujarat’s Surat when locals apprehended the accused and thrashed him in full public view before handing him over to the police.
Sheetal (accused wife) called up her brother Anil on Friday afternoon after she had a heated argument with her husband Balkrishna Rathod, a mill worker.
Anil arrived at the spot and physically assaulted Balkrishna before tying him to his tempo using a rope. The accused then drove down a crowded street for nearly half a kilometre before he was apprehended by locals, police said.
The locals thrashed Anil before alerting the police and handing him over. An FIR was registered against Anil and his sister Sheetal, both of whom are now in police custody.
Officials familiar with the matter said the accused has been identified as one Anil, a tempo driver by profession. Both accused wife and her brother have been booked under section 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC.
Meanwhile, Balkrishna Rathod is undergoing treatment at a local hospital for injuries incurred as a result of the assault.

These are extremely disturbing incidents, where Men (husbands) are abused not just verbally but even assaulted physically by wife and in-laws due to lack of any fear, under the protection of Gender Biased Laws.
Similar incident was reported in October last year from Chandigarh, where a woman and her brother had been arrested by police for stabbing her husband with a pair of scissors in Sector 25 in the garden city. Read article below.
