CCTV footage of woman being pushed out of car by in laws

The woman in the video alleges that she was pushed out of the car by her husband and his parents last month and they were trying to kill her, reports NDTV.

The incident took place soon after the woman and her two young children had moved back in with her husband, believing in his promise of a fresh start. The husband was allegedly abusive.

The man has been charged with attempted murder but is yet to be arrested. He and his parents have been missing for nearly a month.

The couple had been married since 2008 and had had a troubled relationship. After 6 years, she moved back to Mumbai with her parents. She said though her domestic violence case and a divorce petition are pending in a Mumbai court, she agreed to her husband's request for reconciliation after five years of separation.

They went for a holiday to Ooty, she said but he started abusing her and her two children. But after the police adviced after getting his written apology, she went back with him.

NDTV further reports, she says trouble started again in Coimbatore on May 9 when, despite his written promise to keep his parents away from her, Arun Jude Amalraj brought his parents in his car. When she questioned him, he allegedly punched her and pushed her out of the car.

CCTV footage show her falling from the car onto a road just outside her sister's home as the vehicle moves on. She had injuries on her head, shoulders and knees.

"They want to kill us. It's heart wrenching and life threatening. My son saw his dad outside his school and is traumatised. They could target my children. How do I go out to earn my living? Police say he is absconding. There has to be timely justice".

"The family is absconding. Our teams went to Chennai once but then, they were absconding. We were told they are in Trichy (Tiruchirappalli) but they were not there as well. We are on the lookout for them. Once they are arrested, the law will have its course," Sujit Kumar, a senior police office in Coimbatore told NDTV.
