Hyderabad: A local court in Malkajgiri on Thursday sentenced a man to undergo one year of rigorous imprisonment for assaulting and outraging the modesty of his wife. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on him.
It was in April that G Vijaya Bhanu, a worker at an old age home, lodged a complaint with the Kushaiguda police alleging that her husband G Narsaiah pelted stones on her following a dispute between them. When her colleagues – Laxmi, Murari and Gnana Prakash – intervened, Narsaiah assaulted them as well.
Based on the complaint, the Kushaiguda police booked a case and subsequently arrested Narsaiah.
