(Scroll down for video) A young woman was subjected to severe abuse at the hands of her husband and in-laws who wanted to teach her to be obedient.

The woman lived with her husband, 33-year-old Devbir Kalsi, and their 1-year-old daughter, in Florida.

According to police, Devbir asked his parents, Jasbir, 67, and Bhupinder, 61, to fly to the United States, from their home in India, to help him “counsel and discipline his wife for being disobedient.”

One day, when Silky Gaind, 33, and her husband, got into an argument, he and his parent beat her and a knife was also held at her throat.

Her cellphone was taken away so she was unable to call 911.

According to police, the wife was abused over a period of time and she suffered bruises all over her body.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said that the wife eventually told her parents in India, about the abuse and they called police.

When an officer arrived, Devbir and his parents tried to shut the door, but he managed to force his way inside as Gaind was begging him to rescue her and her daughter.

The wife and child are now safe while her husband and in-laws were arrested. They are being held without bail and are facing deportation after serving their prison terms.
