Footage of a taxi driver driving his car with his wife tied to the bonnet is going viral on the internet.

According to Khaleej Times, an anonymous government official said the incident happened in Isfahan, Iran, and the man did this to punish his wife after they had an argument.

The video, which was recorded and distributed by a motorist driving next to the taxi, has sparked outrage on social media.

The woman can be heard pleading her husband to stop.

It has been reported that the woman later fell to the ground and sustained serious injuries.

She was rushed to a nearby hospital and the husband was subsequently arrested.

"This is utterly disgraceful. Husband and wife can have disagreements but he has no right to play with the woman's life," said a furious social media user in a comment on the video.
