A shocking video allegedly captures the moment an angry husband ties up his wife and her lover after discovering she cheated on him.
In the footage, the woman is seen bound by her wrists and tied to a wooden post in a village thought to be located somewhere in north India.
A man appears to hit her repeatedly with a whip as she cries out in fear.
