A man thrashes his daughter publicly in Ulsoor, Bengaluru on Thursday.  

While Senior Police officials were busy celebrating 'International Women’s Day' at the City Police Commissioner’s Office on Thursday, a girl aged around 20-25 years was publicly beaten up by her parents in Ulsoor.

Passers-by were mute spectators to the incident. She was rescued only when two women rushed to help her before alerting the police.

The victim was beaten up by her father Rajaram, a sub-inspector with Madurai (Tamil Nadu) Police. Rumours of the victim’s alleged “affair” triggered the incident and the parents said that they were “teaching her a lesson”. Her mother, a teacher by profession, did not give a helping hand.

Originally from Madurai and currently working in Bengaluru, the victim has denied the rumours.

Her parents wanted to force her to move back to Madurai and arrange a wedding as soon as possible to someone of their choice as she had brought “shame upon the family”.

The Ulsoor police reached the spot after 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the victim had taken shelter in a car alongwith the two women who rescued her. The police later took the victim and her parents to the police station. They were let off after counselling.

“This is a minor incident and a family matter. Also, no complaint has been filed,” said an Ulsoor police station officer.
