A 32-year-old man in India was recently beaten up by his wife, parents-in-law and brother-in-law following quarrels that started after he forgot to wish his wife on the day of their wedding anniversary. The incident happened in Mumbai one day after their anniversary on 19 February 2023; two dates that the man will probably never forget.
As reported by The Hindustan Times, local police officials revealed that the wife, who was angry at her husband for not remembering their wedding anniversary called up her parents and brother to her matrimonial home. When her family arrived, the four of them assaulted her husband and his mother, as well as vandalised his vehicle.
According to Ghatkopar police senior inspector Sanjay Dahake, the four perpetrators have been booked for assault and the police will investigate the matter and take legal action against them. The victim was identified as Vishal Nangre who worked as a driver in a courier company while his wife, 27-year-old Kalpana worked in a food outlet. The couple got married in 2018 and they live in Baiganwadi, Govandi.
Nangre said that he got into an argument with his wife after forgetting their wedding anniversary on 18 February. The next evening, the man was washing his vehicle near his house when his wife returned home from work and suddenly started abusing him and his mother, saying that she didn’t want to live with him anymore.
Her parents and brother then arrived after Kalpana called them and her brother damaged Nangre’s vehicle and broke his house’s window pane. Later that day, both families then tried to talk it out at Nangre’s mother’s house in Ghatkopar West. However, things got heated up again and Kalpana slapped her mother-in-law which resulted in further escalation which ended with Nangre and his mother getting beaten up.
After going to the nearby Rajawadi hospital with his mother, Nangre then lodged a police report. The Indian police are currently investigating the case.
