According to police Devbir Kalsi, 33, called his parents, requesting that they travel to his Riverview, FL home from their native India to “counsel and discipline” his wife, Silky Gaind, for being “disobedient.” During their visit Gaind was stripped of her cell phone and locked in her room, where she was to stay until they flew back to India.
Things escalated quickly when Devbir Kalsi argued with the victim and began beating her. When Gaing tried to defend herself the elder Kalsi's joined in and struck the woman repeatedly. Also inadvertently striking her 1 year old baby, whom she was holding. Gaind somehow managed to call her own parents, in India, who alerted local police. When deputies arrived at the home Devbir attempted to block the door to prevent them from entering, as Gaind screamed for help inside. The officers then managed to push through and handle the situation.
The trio face multiple charges, including battery, false imprisonment and child abuse. They are currently being held without bail at Hillsborough County Jail. If convicted all three could be deported back to India. I don't know about you, but they will get no sympathy from me.
