A situation in Florida quickly escalated out of control after a man called his parents in India for help with a problem. The older couple hopped on a plane and flew from their native India to Florida to help beat their son’s wife for being “disobedient.”
Devbir Kalsi, 33, and his parents Jasbir, 67, and Bhupinder Kalsi, 61, were arrested after his wife Silky Gaind, 33, was found badly beaten and being held against her will at their Riverview home. Silky also called her parents in India to report that her husband and his parents were beating her; her parents quickly called the police in Florida.
The arrest report states that Kalsi struck Silky “repeatedly and forcefully,” and when she made any attempt to defend herself, his parents began hitting her too. Kalsi allegedly held a knife to his wife’s neck as well as a threat. The police said that the beating left bruises on her face, neck, and torso.
Gaind’s young daughter, who was in her arms during the attack, was also struck in the face. When deputies arrived, they found a door had been blocked by Kalsi and they heard the victim screaming inside “for the deputy to save her and her child,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said. The deputy burst in and arrested Kalsi before arresting his parents.
“Awful, nobody should go through that,” an unidentified neighbor told Fox 13 of the horrifying incident. “It really is heartbreaking. There’s a brand new baby. But who beats their wife up and his mother and dad help him? Who does that?”
Devbir and Jasbir Kalsi may face charges of “false imprisonment, child abuse, and denying access to 911,” according to the Tampa Bay Times. Devbir Kalso also could face felony battery charge, and Jasbir Kalsi was accused of “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon,” the paper reported. Bhupinder Kalsi could face “charges of battery domestic violence and failure to report child abuse.”
They were all booked into Hillsborough County Jail and were being held without bond. Fox 13 reported that the three could face deportation back to India. Gaind and her infant were put in a safe place, the sheriff’s office said.
