DADU: The Jamshoro police on Saturday raided a house in Manzoorabad, some 30 kilometres from Manjhand town, to rescue a woman and her four children locked up in a room by her husband.
The raid was conducted after Hyderabad DIG Pir Mohammad Shah received an SMS from the woman, Anam Khero, who reported that her estranged husband, Rajib Solangi, intended to kill her and their four children.
The DIG asked Jamshoro SSP Javed Baloch to rush a raiding team to the specified house and rescue them.
Accordingly, the police safely rescued the woman and children and took them into protective custody. They would be produced in a court of law soon, the police said.
Anam Khero, 30, told the Jamshoro police that she had separated from her husband some time ago. She stated that on Saturday, she visited her husband to meet their children but she found her husband extremely furious over her visit. `Before locking us in the room, he subjected me to torture while repeatedly threatening to kill me along with our children,` she told the raiding team after being rescued.
Fortunately, she added, she had a mobile phone and the DIG`s number so she sent him a distress call.
SSP Javed Baloch said Rajib Solangi had already escaped from the house when it was raided.
