The police said she was tortured by her husband over the past week. As the woman raised the matter in her family, her family decided to bring her back from her husband’s house. When they reached the house, Jowhar attacked her father and the others. The woman, who is four-and-a-half months pregnant, alleged Jowhar even kicked her in the stomach.
