I've been reading this in a few Indian newspapers today. I have a gut feeling these are a set of lies. If the girl or her parents / friends can prove to me otherwise, I'd definitely apologize.
Now, why do I think these are potential lies ?
This is what has been reported by Ms.Muthumari Bhadrinath:
“He abused me physically, beat me for 15-20 minutes daily. He bit me on my hands. When I requested him to take me to a doctor, he took me there and told the doctor it was a bee bite,” she says.
I have been living in the US for quite a few years now and I know how the law works here.
- The doctors here are trained and even counseled to look for injuries due to physical abuse ( bee-bite vs bite injuries ? Doctors aren't idiots)
- The person being abused has to just call 911 for help from the cops. Why didn't she call?
- Especially women and children - They get the highest priority for abuse.
- I know a lot of cases where the system has been abused ! Men/women/kids lie about abuse !
Something doesn't smell right here. I feel sad for Ms. Muthumari Bhadrinath, her child and her husband who is in the US.
I hope the authorities in India don't rush to any conclusion based on Ms.Muthumari Bhadrinath's complaint.
