“We’ve been married for 32 years, in 2008 she had complained against me. But the point is, since 2008 she has been living in my house, enjoying all facilities and travelling abroad on my expenses. If my nature is abusive then she should’ve complained earlier. Also Read - MP Shocker: Woman Alleges Gangrape by Cops in Lock-up, Police Deny
This is a family dispute, not a crime. I am neither a violent person nor a criminal. It is unfortunate that I have to go through this. My wife stalks me & has put cameras in the house,” ADG Sharma told reporters.
Here’s the video:
A complaint was lodged by Purushottam’s son, who also shared the video of the incident with the police. He has demanded strict action against Sharma for assaulting his mother.
MP State Women Commission Spokesperson Sangeeta Sharma said that such an incident will not be tolerated by the Women’s Commission. Such incidents by senior officials do not convey a good message in society, and strict action will be taken, she added.
The police officer has been eventually relieved of his duties.
