Additional Director General (ADG) of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, Purushottam Sharma, has been suspended after a video of him beating his wife went viral on social media.
According to reports, Sharma’s wife had caught him with another woman.
Speaking to media, Sharma said they have been married for 32 years. “In 2008, she had complained against me. But the point is, since 2008 she has been living in my house, enjoying all facilities and travelling abroad on my expenses.”
“If my nature is abusive then she should’ve complained earlier. This is a family dispute, not a crime. I am neither a violent person nor a criminal. It is unfortunate that I have to go through this. My wife stalks me and has put cameras in the house.”
Several Twitter users were enraged by his comments.
