Ahmedabad man beats his sister with tongs over the paan masala fight

AHMEDABAD: Furious at being reprimanded for spitting masala in his bathroom, Ajaysinh Shekhawat of Kotarpur hit his sister Kailash Rathod with metal tongs on Thursday. Rathod filed an FIR against his brother at the airport police station.

Airport police said they recorded a case of assault and arrested Shekhawat.

According to the FIR presented by Rathod, he married Rajendrasinh Rathod de Lambha 12 years ago. As her husband often suffered attacks and could not work, she went to live with her parents in Kotarpur.

On Thursday, his mother reprimanded his younger brother Ajaysinh for spitting paan masala in the bathroom. Shekhawat got angry and started abusing his mother. When Kailash intervened and tried to calm Ajaysinh, he grabbed a pair of metal tweezers and hit her on the head and other parts of the body, said Inspector K C Rathwa.

Kailash then called the police control room and filed a police complaint against Shekawat. We arrested him for assault, said a senior police officer.
