Adding that divorce had enraged her brothers, they also did not like her seeking a job and going to court against her former husband for the expenses of two children.
“In order to stop the woman from going out, her brothers not only tortured her but also chained and locked her in a dark room. A chain had been wrapped around her neck and another one was around her foot for the past year. She had been kept like an animal inside the room, without electricity,” said the DPO.
DPO Swabi added that police have arrested her three brothers- Sayar Khan, Fahim Khan, and Nadeem Khan. The fourth brother is on the run.
“There was not even a fan inside the room. When we raided the house, we saw that she had been chained like an animal and the only light coming into the room was through a window,” said another police official.
