The girl is not accepted by her husband’s family and there is a dowry dispute
Women in India are often beaten and sometimes killed if their family refuses or is unable to pay the dowry demanded by her husband’s relatives

Local reports in Katalwi, Punjab, suggest that Meena Kashyap, 35, was also attacked as part of a dowry dispute.

Footage shows her cowering and screaming in pain as she is hit with hockey sticks by two men believed to be her brother-in-law and a friend of his.

Her husband’s family had recently found out that she had previously made complaints about them in April saying they had treated her with violence.

Ms Kashyap is said to be in dispute over a dowry of £8,300 given to her by her in-laws but then when she gave birth to a girl her husband’s family were angered.

She has been beaten a number of times, according to the Hindustan Times.

Police are bringing charges against her husband Daljit Singh, his brother Kamaljeet, and a friend identified only as Gaurav.

The charges include trespass and ‘voluntarily causing hurt’.

Her father said: ‘We had complained about the issue last year itself but nothing was being done regarding that.

‘They have been married for the past two years now and have a girl child. Their family asked for 700,000 rupees for dowry.’

    Indians need help …

  • people have to go to school for rational thinking

    • Very true Maurice i agree with you.

    • We have a cabinet full of PhD holders who cannot grasp the simplest concepts of economics.Education is highly overrated.

  • Arrest those bastards! Did they ever go to school? I actually prefer baby girls than boys even if it means five girls in a row its fine to me. But seriously honestly giving birth to back baby girl is not wrong at all and its neither a mother or father’s fault, its nature, its scientific as well.I hope these people get arrested for abusing and beating up a woman,worse they abuse and beat woman who has just given birth,causing so much stress and depression on this woman. She just leave that family for good and raise her daughter on her own even if it means selling tomatoes and airtime to support herself and her daughter its better than being subjected to this insane, dull ignorant humiliation by crazed, deranged people.

  • A lot of UK hospitals refuse to disclose the baby’s sex to people of this particular background. This is because the husbands side may force woman to have a abortion if unborn child is a girl.
