After seeing this video, immeidately a sting operation came to my mind. In Delhi, minority community higher secondary school, one sting operation was arragned by a news channel to get more viewer ship and on the basis of that to get more commercial adertisements. In the sting operation, the allegation of the channel journalist was that a lady teacher used some of the girl students as prostitutes and is paying them some amount and is keeping a hefty amount with her. The video was shown starting from 9.00 a.m. and within one hour a large number of parents and neighbourhood people reached the school and vandalised the school and finally disrobed the teacher totally on whom the allegations were laid. No one could dare to protect her. Through out the day, the news channel provoked the people against that lady and against the school and managed a huge viewership. The teacher was taken to the police station and sent to judicial remand. After a week, the entire real story came out in public. The T.V. Journalist is a crooked fellow and arranged one immoral lady and scripttted the entire drama and put totally false allegation against that particular teacher, who was totally innocent. Note it, the journalist did not have any grievance against that particular lady teacher. She became simply a scape goat for his professional advancement. As such, India T.V., which showed this video is also not highly respected for its news credibility. Some days back, this very news channel showed the "HEAVEN" at the top of Himalayas, where, Pandavas went after their death. This is the only news channel, which could take us living humble human beings to the heaven during our life time.
Having said so, I always say that there will be always people, who would like to chew the sensational stories. Assuming but not admitting the credibility of this video, if a wife beats husband it is really sensational and news worthy item. If husband beats a wife (often it is happening), can any one watch such video. We see them with our naked eyes in every day life. You go to any slum after 9.00 PM and see several instances of drunkard husband beating the wife. That is not new and that is not news. Videos are not being made.
Now coming to legal question. The person, who is relying on this video, first has to show that the male person is husband and female person is wife. Next he has to prove that this video is not doctored. That too from Government authorised Forensic lab. Then the expert has to come in the witness box and prove the authenticity and non-doctoring of the video. It has also to be seen that whether the man has not provoked her to such an extent out of the camera view to receive the beating within the range of camera. Next have to explain to the satisfaction of the court that why wife has become such violent. I am not putting any allegation against the man, but suppose in the afternoon, the husband had s*x with the maid, the wife is taking revenge and abusing him physically. Then the courts will see the beating of wife completely in different light.
This thing is not happening just in matrimonial laws. In every field people are using deceptive methods. For example, if an industrialist lost a large market and finished products are lying in his go-down waiting for sale and he is not interested for further production and even then he has to pay wages to a large number of workers, what does he do? He simply calls the union leader and abuse him without any reason and slap him before his workers. The workers, provoked, immediately go on indefinite strike. Then the industrialist escapes to pay wages during the strike period. Every thing has happened as industrialist thought. All these things are happening in every filed.
