A case has been registered and the accused has been arrested.
A woman who was caught on camera thrashing mercilessly her freedom fighter mother-in-law was arrested, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar confirmed on Saturday.
A case has been registered and the accused has been arrested, the Chief Minister tweeted.
He tagged a video that depicts inhuman treatment meted out to the elderly fragile woman, a former member of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's Indian National Army (INA), who was lying on a cot in a courtyard.
"This is deplorable and condemnable, such behaviour should not be tolerated in civilised society," Khattar wrote.
The Chief Minister's reaction came when a video clip from Niwaj Nagar village in Narnaul subdivision of Mahendragarh district filmed by the victim's neighbours went viral.
The old woman is the recipient of a Rs30,000 government pension, claimed Rishi Bagree, who posted the video and tagged Khattar.
In another tweet, Bagree wrote that a teenaged girl had shot the video.
