NAWABSHAH, Nov 29: Two wives of a man have appealed to President and Prime Minister to provide them justice and direct police to arrest their husband.
Ms Asia Khashkheli and Ms Parveen Goomal of Taj Colony Nawabshah speaking to a press conference said that they had escaped from the house of their husband Rasheed Jamali in Jhat Pat, Dera Allahyar Balochistan to save their lives.
Ms Parveen, the second wife disclosed that at the time of her marriage she was not aware that Rasheed was already married with four kids. He took her to his home and forced her for prostitution and on refusal, bet her with cable wire. The torture, she said, became a routine as once, he even nicked her locks.
She further said that Rasheed used to bring his friends at home and would force her to cultivate a liberal relationship with them, to the extent of consuming alcohol. She narrated an instance when her husband forced down alcohol and also injected her with some drug.
Parveen said that she, Asia and her children escaped with her mother when she came to visit her from Nawabshah.
Ms Asia supported Parveen’s claims as she too, had undergone the same ordeal. Both were threatened by their husband, several times, of dire consequences.
Both women sold their gold earrings to reach Nawabshah where they met a lawyer for filing divorce papers.
Women accompanied by their parents made a passionate appeal to President and Prime Minister to intervene and teach the man, a lesson others should also take learn from.
