India woman held after assault video goes viral

Police in India have detained a woman after CCTV footage which appears to show her beating her mother-in-law went viral.

Sangeeta Jain was held on Tuesday in connection with the attack on 70-year-old Raj Rani Jain in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The footage is said to be from last week and was captured after Ms Jain's husband installed a CCTV camera in their house in Bijnore to "expose" his wife.

Police said there was a "lot of infighting in the family between the husband, wife and mother-in-law".

Some of the content in this video has been edited out, due to its graphic nature.
