A 25-year-old model named Priyanka Kapoor Chawla recently committed suicide in her South Delhi flat. She had left a suicide note blaming her husband Nitin Chawla of domestic abuse.
Her sister Dimpy has now shared an image of Priyanka after she was allegedly beaten up by Nitin.
According to HT, Dimpy said:
Nitin woke Priyanka at 4 am and started beating her. He was angry over Priyanka stepping out for tea with her friend. He did not even let her explain. Priyanka told me that she was sleeping in her room, when Nitin came, woke her up and punched her in the face. He slapped, punched and kicked her. He held her from her neck and slammed her head against the wall. She somehow managed to inform us and we got her back home. She was scared. Nitin then followed us to our home and stood outside our house like a maniac. We refused to entertain him. We told him that we will speak to his parents. The next day, we called Nitin’s parents and told them that we are approaching the police, but they threatened us. Nitin’s brother told us that he had contacts.
Nitin’s parents told Priyanka that it was “normal” in a marriage:
Priyanka got convinced and returned home, but her mother-in-law tortured her. Once she had gone to visit her in-laws at their Meera Bagh residence, when her mother-in-law hit Priyanka. Priyanka was so scared of Nitin that she stopped telling us about the abuse.
Priyanka was a modern woman. She did not believe in superstitions. But Nitin forced her to visit a tantrik and eat the priest’s offering, which irked her.
