In impassive, black-and-white footage, the disturbing events unfold inside a living room just like any other. A woman is seemingly manhandled inside her home, dragged off the bed on to the floor and her child, barely old enough to walk straight, totters around trying to protect her. The three apparent aggressors are her husband, mother-in-law and her father-in-law - a retired high court judge. The woman is 30-year-old Sindhu Sharma who married Nooty Vashisht, the son of a then judge Nooty Ramamohana Rao and his wife Nooty Durga Jayalakshmi. She has filed a case of domestic violence and harassment for dowry against the in-laws.
