Her husband along with the village head of Samba district’s Bri Kamila area, Mukhtiyar Singh, who saw the video, immediately approached the police and a case was registered.
SSP Samba Abhishek Mahajan, who confirmed the development said the woman has been arrested, adding the female child has been handed over to her husband.
