Lucknow, Nov 25: A man beat his wife after she posted a message on WhatsApp. The woman has lodged an FIR against her husband, accusing him of assault at the Hasanganj police station. According to the FIR, Renu Shukla, a housewife and resident of CSIR colony under the Hasanganj police station limits, approached the police on Wednesday and accused her husband Mridul of abusing and assaulting her.

In her complaint, Renu stated that her husband was angry with her for sharing her WhatsApp status and started abusing her soon after he returned home around 9 p.m. on Tuesday.
