Husband shaves wife’s head, makes her wear string of shoes
A man, along with his brother, allegedly had the head of his wife shaved, made her wear a string of shoes around her neck and forced her to march through the village.
According to DPO Omar Saeed Malik, he had been informed that a woman was being tortured on suspicion of cheating on her husband in a village in Satghara. He ordered the SHO to take immediate action against the suspects.
When SHO Malik Arshad reached the spot with a heavy contingent of police, the accused had already fled.
The victim told the police that she had married Shahadat four years ago.
SHO Malik Arshad said that initial investigations revealed that the victim had fled with a young man, but returned to her husband a few days later through mediation by a Panchayat.
However, the woman’s husband nurtured a grudge over his wife’s walking out on him for another man and decided to settle the score with his wife and her friend. Police took remand of the accused for three days and were conducting raids for the other accused.
Police shifted the woman to the hospital under their supervision and registered a case against five nominees and two unidentified persons and arrested the two main accused, Shahadat and Saleem.
