The police caught the abusive husband for physically harrasing his wife. The neighbors complained about it after they gathered substantial evidences. Many litigation are on the way to put the husband behind the bars. Once he striked down his wife so badly, she was bedridden for 10 days. Again he hit his wife intentionally with a car while going back into the garage. He also tried to kill his wife, while trying to embrace her, he pushed her inside the dark pit near the forest area.
