“My wife does not consider me as her husband and is a threat to the life of my child. I want her to be put behind bars,” he complains
DIG Ashutosh Kumar said: “I have seen the video and ordered an inquiry into the matter.”
Deepak, accused husband used to beat her wife and now she has left her husband and is living with her parents.
