Speaking to ITV News Central Sameena Ali-Khan earlier, a cultural expert explained why domestic violence and abuse is such a hidden problem in the South Asian community.
Dr Karan Jutlla is an expert on migration and examined different cultural attitudes while carrying out her PHD at the University of Worcester.
She told ITV News Central that although domestic violence is relevant across all communities, it is so hidden in South Asian relationships because of the additional cultural pressure placed on women in households, and their loss of identity and inability to speak out when they enter into married life.
