A woman in Lahore's Defence area has accused her husband of subjecting her to torture after she refused to dance in front of his friends.
Asma Aziz told that her husband used to force her to dance in front of his friends
The woman has alleged that her husband attempted to strip her clothes with help from his servants and tried to hang her at their house
The incident came to to light after the wife with shaved head posted her video on social medial appealing for justice from authorities and seeking help from the public. Asma managed to escape from the house and reached a local police station and lodged a complaint.
Reacting to the alleged incident of torture, the Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP), Amjad Javed Saleemi, on Wednesday, ordered immediate action against the accused.
A judicial magistrate on Monday sent Mian Faisal off to jail until a medical report of the victim is furnished before the court.
Judicial Magistrate Shahid Zia, who was hearing the case at Model Town Courts, said that a ruling will be made on the matter after the medical report of the accuser, Asma Aziz, is presented.
According to Aziz's account, she had married Faisal four years ago. Her husband turned hostile and started misbehaving with and torturing her over petty issues within six months of their marriage, Aziz said.
