Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Vivek Bindra has been booked for allegedly assaulting his wife in Noida, police officials said on Saturday.
The police said they are investigating the allegations and would take action upon probe.
Bindra could not be contacted immediately for his response.
The FIR was lodged at the Sector 126 police station on December 14 after a complaint by Vaibhav Kwatra, brother of Bindra’s wife Yanika.
Bindra and Yanika got married on December 6 and were living in a posh society in Sector 94 here, he said.
”On the morning of December 7, my brother-in-law, Vivek Bindra, was arguing with his mother, Prabha ji. When my sister Yanika intervened in this matter, my brother-in-law locked the room with my sister, abused her, and beat her a lot, due to which she has wounds all over her body, is unable to hear, and her hair were also torn out,” Kwatra claimed.
”Due to the head wound, she was feeling quite dizzy. She was being treated at Kailash Deepak Hospital in Delhi,” he claimed.
Kwatra also alleged that during the fight, Bindra broke his sister’s mobile phone. He urged the police to take strict action in the case.
A senior police officer said on the basis of the complaint, an FIR has been lodged in the case under Indian Penal Code sections 323 (causing hurt), 504 (insult to provoke breach of peace), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt), and 427 (mischief).
”We have launched an investigation into the case to ascertain the facts. Necessary action would be taken accordingly,” Assistant Commissioner of Police (Noida) Rajneesh Verma told PTI.
