Indian-American woman battered in Florida by husband, re-victimized by ‘system’

Indian-American Silky Gaind was allegedly #battered by her husband and elderly in-laws, who flew from Punjab, India to Tampa, Florida to reportedly assist their son in controlling his disobedient 33-year-old wife, according to several news organizations. Gaind was rescued by police in September after she called her parents in India, telling them about the assaults she suffered. She was finally permitted to leave a “court-mandated shelter” for battered women last month, India West reported on Friday (Nov. 24).

Gaind’s release from the shelter followed an online petition that was launched by Margaret Petros, Executive Director, Mothers Against Murder (MAM), and supported on social media by Papiha Nandy, CEO and President, Papiha Nandy Broadcasting Company (PNBC). Indian-American woman battered in Florida by husband, re-victimized by ‘system’
