VEHARI: A man divorced his wife after she got him arrested for subjecting her to torture at Lakha Luddan village.
Nasim Bibi, a resident of mauza Lakha Luddan, filed a complaint two days ago with Luddan police against her husband, Khadim Husain, for subjecting her to physical torture.
The police booked Husain under Section 107/151 of the PPC.
On Tuesday, after securing a bail from a local court, Khadim Husain divorced Nasim Bibi.
Denying the torture allegation, he claimed that he had only admonished his wife for “misuse” of mobile phone.
Though Husain was booked under PPC sections, SHO Rana Khalid claimed police were bound to take action on torture complaints after enactment of women’s protection law.
