Man's Parents Fly In From India To Beat Wife (Photos) Promo Image

A Florida man and his parents were arrested after beating the man's wife for being disobedient.

Devbir Kalsi, 33, had called his parents, Jasbir, 67, and Bhupinder Kalsi, 61, to fly into Florida from India to help "counsel and discipline" his wife, 33-year-old Silky Gaind, for being disobedient, the Daily Mail reported. They then beat Gaind and held her against her own will.

According to the police report, Devbir would regularly beat Gaind -- and this time, he asked his parents to fly in from India to help "discipline" her.

During this particular incident, Gaind was locked in her room and had her cell phone taken away from her. The beating occurred after Devbir got into an argument with his wife.

Devbir struck Gaind "repeatedly and forcefully," according to the police report. When Gaind tried defending herself, Devbir's parents began striking her, as well. Police found bruises on Gaind's neck, face and torso.

Gaind's 1-year-old daughter was also inadvertently struck in the face. Gaind was holding her in her arms during the attack. Devbir then allegedly held a kitchen knife to his wife's throat and threatened to stab her.

Gaind called her own parents in India and told them she was being beaten by her husband and his family. They then called the police.

When authorities arrived, they found the door being blocked and heard Gaind screaming "for the deputy to save her and her child," the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Police arrested Devbir. His parents were then also detained.

"Awful, nobody should go through that," a neighbor -- who wished to remain anonymous -- told Fox News. "It really is heartbreaking. There's a brand new baby. But who beats their wife up and his mother and dad help him? Who does that?"

Devbir and Jasbir Kalsi may now be facing charges of false imprisonment, child abuse and denying access to 911, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Devbir could be facing an additional felony battery charge.

Jabir could face an aggravated battery with a deadly weapon charge, and Bhupinder could also be facing charges of battery domestic violence and failure to report child abuse.

Devbir and his parents could also all be facing deportation back to India. They are currently being held at Hillsborough County Jail without bail.

Gaind and her 1-year-old daughter, who was not seriously injured in the incident, have been moved to a safe place, according to the sheriff's office.
