An Indian origin man in the US has reportedly beaten his girlfriend and despite video evidence of the act, he did not face any jail.

According to Huffington Post, Gurbaksh Chahal, who is the CEO of RadiumOne, was sentenced to three years' probation, 52 weeks in a domestic violence training program and 25 hours of community service.

Chahal, once named one of America's "most eligible bachelors", was arrested last August when his girlfriend called 911 and reported a case of domestic violence.

Security camera footage clearly showed Chahal beating his girlfriend 117 times in 30 minutes; prosecutors cited 'cheating' as the reason for the violence.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Brendan Conroy didn't accept the video footage saying that the footage wasn't seized legally, prosecution cleared that evidence were at a risk of tempering.
