What's surprising is that Neha had submitted a 6-minute long video of physical assault taken by her iPhone, in which Gattani had hit her at least 9 times.

In a shocking case, a Silicon valley CEO originally hailing from India has gotten only one month of jail term even after physically abusing his techie wife for years as he was offered a plea deal.

Reports say that in spite of recorded evidence, which had been submitted by his wife Neha Rastogi, the owner of a customer behaviour analytics startup based in the Silicon Valley, Abhishek Gattani escaped harsh punishment as he offered "no contest" to his wife.

The wife had submitted a 6-minute long video of the assault...

What's surprising is that Neha had submitted a 6-minute long video of physical assault taken by her iPhone on May 17 last year, in which Gattani had hit her at least 9 times.

"You begin to hear the repeated thwacks in the presence of their then 2-year-old daughter," reports the International website, The Daily Beast.

Neha was herself a techie and was working with Apple. The couple has been married for 10 years and have a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter.

But as Gattani pleaded no contest all her efforts would be in vain now and he would almost walk away free with only a month in prison.

Last week, Neha had revealed shocking details about her abusive relationship with her husband of 10 years in a four-page long victim impact statement.

"Offensive touching, I call it terrorism... That's how I felt, terrorised, and controlled, held hostage by the fear of pain, humiliation, and assault on my being and my daughter's, "she said in court.

Signs you're in an emotionally abusive relationship

While the wife in the above case took 1o years to realise that she was in an unhappy marriage, there are some signs that every woman must watch out for if she feels that her partner does not love her. Abuse doesn't only qualify as something that is physical. There are other ways in which your partner might hurt you emotionally:

  • Your husband is always angry: No matter how big or small the issue is, the quarreling never stops points at deep-set frustration or anger.
  • There is physical abuse: Besides abusing you emotionally, your partner also indulges in domestic abuse, it's a sign that your husband does not care for you or your feelings.
  • He humiliates you publicly: Your partner is constantly demeaning you in front of others and waits for opportunities to make fun of you and mock you publicly.
