Maharashtra: Father beats son-in-law to death for assaulting his daughter
On Saturday, a man tied up and killed his son-in-law in a village in Maharashtra, after his daughter was severely beaten up, police said.
An official from the Kupwad MIDC Police Station said that the incident occurred at around midnight where Geetanjali and her husband Dnyaneshwar Bamne had come from Basargi village to attend a carnival coinciding with some religious festivities.
Apparently, a sudden quarrel broke out between the couple, following which Bamne started brutally assaulting Geetanjali.
Geetanjali’s father Anna Shinde intervened, caught hold of Bamne, tied him to a pole and started kicking, punching and assaulting him with a stick.
Bamne couldn’t defend himself in that tied condition. Soon he collapsed and died there after, while Geetanjali was rushed to a hospital in critical condition, the police official said.
Anna Shinde will be produced before a local court for remand later in the day.
