A man and his wife have flown all the way from India to the United States just to beat up their own son’s wife.
An Indian man is alleged to have called his parents and asked them to fly from India to Florida to beat his wife for being disobedient.
According to Metro UK, Jasbir and Bhupinder Kalsi are said to be facing deportation back to India, along with their son, after the attack on Silky Gaind, 33.
She was found badly beaten after being held prisoner in her own home in Riverview, Tampa, police said.
Her young daughter was also hit in the face and Kalsi threatened them with a kitchen knife.
Silky managed to summon help when she called her own parents who were also in India to tell them she was being beaten by husband Devbir Kalsi and his mum and dad.
They alerted police and when they arrived they heard Silky’s screams.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said she was shouting ‘for the deputy to save her and her child.’
They said that Kalsi was blocking the door but managed to get into the home.
Silky was found to have bruises on her face, neck and body after being repeatedly and forcefully struck by the trio.
Police said that Kalsi called his parents to fly to the US to ‘counsel and discipline’ Silky for her apparent ‘disobedience’ and he locked her in a room and took her mobile phone from her.
Her husband and father-in-law are facing possible charges of false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Her mother-in-law is facing charges of ‘battery domestic violence and failure to report child abuse.’
