According to latest information, the Hassan Police in Karnataka has arrested the father, who was seen assaulting his minor daughter with the hammer.

The incident occurred at Champaknagar in Sakaleshpur, Hassan. The accused is identified as Prashanth, a native of Hassan. He is said to have been in an inebriated state when he assaulted his daughter.

After the video became viral, Hassan Police, under the direction of superintendent of police (SP) Ram Nivas Sepat, started the investigation and arrested Prashanth today. 

"Police have now arrested Prashant under section 324 of the IPC and various sections of  juvenile justice acts based on the complaint filed by his wife," said SP Sepat.
