Indian-origin woman in UK escapes jail after beating husband
A 62-year-old Indian-origin woman on Tuesday escaped jail time after she pleaded guilty to assaulting her cheating husband in a drunken state. Jaginder Singh is said to have snapped and hit her businessman husband Narinder Singh because he spent just part of the week at their home near Manchester and the rest with his mistress.
The woman admitted assault by beating and was conditionally discharged for 12 months and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of 20 pounds. “We understand that you have spent two nights in custody. We do require you to get help immediately and to help yourself and your family,” Judge Belinda Krieke said at Manchester Magistrates’ Court.
According to ‘The Daily Telegraph’, the couple belong to a well-known Sikh family in the area and the row broke out last Friday.
