The video shows the two accused grabbing Sultana by her hair and dragging her out, after which they proceed to thrash her in broad daylight. The clip also reveals that the accused’s son, Ubaid Ali Khan, has been working in Saudi for the last decade. Ubaid married for a second time to Uzma Begum, who is the one seen thrashing Sultana.
Ubaid had returned to Saudi a month after his second wedding. It is being alleged that his second wife Uzma had been troubling his elderly mother Tashanima Sultana from some time and that the two women had also lodged police complaints against each other at the Humayun nagar Police Station in Hyderabad.
The video, which is now doing rounds on social media, was recorded on October 8 when a fight broke out between Uzma Begum and Tashanima Sultana in Hyderabad’s Mallepally. Uzma’s mother also joined her in assaulting the elderly lady, as seen in the video.
Surprisingly, it is actually a young boy who can be seen recording the assault in a mobile phone’s camera, until Uzma asks him to go inside the house. A fresh complaint has been filed in this regard with the Hyderabad police and further investigation into the matter is underway.
