West Godavari: In a bizarre and cruel incident at Savara village under Narsapuram Mandal of West Godavari district, a father brutally thrashed and harassed his two minor daughters with belt and plastic wire. He did so to force his wife, working in Kuwait of the gulf, to send him money.
U Elisha, the father, would record his cruel beatings and sent the videos to his wife, U Mahalakshmi. The incident became known when the videos of him thrashing his kids leaked. The video is currently doing rounds on social media platforms, where netizens are describing the man as a monster for beating his daughters for money.
As per reports, Mahalakshmi, a mother of two daughters, went to the gulf to work as a labourer. She could not send money to her husband for a few months, and hence, the man was forcing his wife by beating his kids, who are eight and six years old. In the videos, he would urge his daughters to beg for the money and threatened them by saying that he would kill them if their mother failed to send money.
Elisha, who is an addict, failed to take care of his daughters, and he has been demanding his wife to send more money to meet his vices. Mahalakshmi came to know that her husband didn’t spend the money on their daughters. She stopped her financial support and Mahalakshmi would instead send the money to her parents to take care of her two daughters.
Narsapuram Deputy Superintendent of Police, Nageswara Rao, said that Mahalakshmi, who was shocked to see the videos, sent her brother, asking him to rescue her two daughters. The DSP added that they have registered cases under various sections of the Juvenile Justice Act and IPC.
“We have launched a search for Elisha, who has fled. We also came to know that Elisha’s sister would beat the two girls. The latter also helped her brother by recording the video of Elisha beating his daughters,” Rao said.
The officer informed that the girls are under the safe custody of Mahalakshmi’s brother, and the two children are shocked due to the constant harassment from their father.
