A woman was caught on CCTV mercilessly beating her 70-year-old mother-in-law and trying to strangle her with a cloth at her home in Bijnor. The CCTV was installed by her estranged husband. The woman, Sangeeta Jain, has been arrested on charges of attempt to murder after her husband showed the shocking video to the police.

The video captured on January 5 shows Sangeeta using a cloth to strangle her mother-in-law Raj Rani Jain and then brutally assaulting her. Sangeeta had some differences with her husband Sandeep Jain and mother-in-law, and their divorce case was pending in a local court. Sangeeta had also lodged a complaint against Sandeep under the Dowry Act, according to SHO Nehtaur, Chandra Kant Yadav. Sandeep was sent to police custody for a day on January 4 on charges of dowry harassment.

Sandeep suspected that Sangeeta used to torture his parents in his absence and had installed a CCTV camera in his mother’s room to keep an eye on his wife. On January 5, he came to know from the CCTV footage that Sangeeta was “mercilessly thrashing” the old day and informed the police at Nehtaur, who allegedly turned him away. Sandeep yesterday reported the matter to the SP (rural) following which Sangeeta was arrested and will be produced in court today.
