In a shocking development, a woman on Sunday took to Twitter to express her agony and to seek help against her husband’s alleged torture. The woman pleaded for help and requested that she be rescued from the clutches of her husband who is an automobile businessman. In the video posted on Twitter by filmmaker Ashoke Pandit, the woman, a Khar resident, is seen weeping for “help and justice”. Ashoke Pandit in his post also emphasised the need to implement ‘Beti Padhao Beti Bachao’ scheme, a social movement that the incumbent government intended to start to improve efficiency in welfare services for women. The woman said that she has been tortured mentally and physically by her husband. The woman accused her husband of torturing her for several years. She further said that she has stayed in the relationship just for her children’s sake.
The woman via video alleged that the businessman even refuses to provide her money. The afflicted woman appealed for justice and stated that if the police refuse to take any action then she would land up on the streets of Khar. “Kindly help me, because this man will torture me mentally and end up my life. If I don’t get justice I will end up tomorrow in the streets of Khar. Please give me justice,” the woman said in the video.
