Images of a cop thrashing his daughter in a Bangalore street have gone viral on social media. The images of the shameful act were posted on Facebook by two young women who intervened to save the 25-year-old girl.

In her Facebook post, Nivedita, one of the woman who intervened, said the man, a policeman from Madurai, beat his daughter “black and blue”, while at least 50 people on the street simply watched.

The man was allegedly angry about his daughter’s relationship.

“The parents had heard rumors of their daughter having an affair and was hence “teaching her a lesson” refusing to listen to her or believe her denying the affair. The father wanted to take her back to Madurai , against the wishes of the adult daughter and forcibly marry her to someone of their choice,” said the Facebook post.

“If a policeman chooses to physically and publicly abuse his adult daughter, how are we safe in the hands of such “protectors of law”?? If a teacher mistrusts and blames her adult daughter while supporting her husband’s abusive behavior, how can we entrust our children’s grooming to such “educators and shapers of young India” ??

      That daughter survived probably because it happened in South and the father is from Tamilnadu. The lady probably would not be alive today if she were from UP, Bihar, Haryana, Rajasthan type North Indian states!

        If this happened in USA, the cop would go to jail for number of years and possibly would not be taken back into the police force.

          A young lady is an adult should be treated with respect and honor. No father should be physically mistreating his adult daughters. This cop should be fired and put in jail for ault. And the Bangalore cops who did not take action should be suspended without pay for several months. Terrible commentary on Tamil culture. I am from Chennai and this is unacceptable from cops.

                    Now this stupid cop will tell you that he goes to temple daily and does puja for Saraswati and Durga, so there is no chance that he could be anti-woman.
