The incident took place in the Korchalyevsky district of the Chechen Republic. The Chechen authorities opened an immediate investigation into the incident. The father beat his 17-year-old daughter and then shaved her hair completely.

Sources close to the family pointed out that the father's reaction came as a result of his ignorance of the decision of his only daughter, who decided to marry without the father's own knowledge.
The case was referred to the court for consideration. The Russian Penal Code provides for a maximum sentence of up to three years' imprisonment.
