The footage, which has swiftly gone viral, showcases an act of abuse that has sparked widespread condemnation and calls for justice among the civil society in Mangaluru.


In the incident caught on CCTV, an 87-year-old man, Padmanabha Suvarna, was subjected to vicious beating by his daughter-in-law, Uma Shankari, in Kulshekar of Mangaluru. The assault, which occurred on March 9, involved the use of a walking stick, leaving the elderly victim severely injured.

Padmanabha Suvarna, a resident of Mangaluru, is now receiving treatment for his injuries at a private hospital.
The accused, Uma Shankari, currently employed as an officer of the electricity provider company at Attavar, was taken into custody following a complaint filed by the victim's daughter.

The accused's husband, who is the son of the victim, is reported to be working abroad.

The incident has sent shockwaves through the local community, prompting concerns about the well-being of the elderly and the need for stringent measures against domestic violence.

Uma Shankari, employed as an officer with the Karnataka Electricity Board at Attavar, was swiftly apprehended after a complaint was lodged by the victim's daughter.

The doctor treating the Suvarna told PTI that there were multiple injuries on the body of the victim including a head injury which he received during a fall on a wooden sofa at the site of the attack.
