When she could not deliver baby son,Aslam Siddqui assulted his wife Hina Parveen.
Praveen,who was mother of two girls,went to Jagannathpur police station in Ranchi and lodged an FIR there against him on October 19.”Only because I could not give birth to any son,he always tortured me and beat me up”,she stated in her complaint.
Praveen and Siddqui had got married in 2005.Subsequently,she became mother of a girl child.”Eversince he has been abusive.Many times he had beaten me up.After I delivered another baby girl,he left me and my children fend for ourselves.On October 18,he came with his four friends and started beating me”,she added in her complaint.
The couple were Muslims.After Praveen raised hue and cry on Friday night,her neighbours-all Muslims-came to her rescue.They cought him and handed him over to the police.
In response,the police arrested Siddiqui and remanded him in judicial custody.Although the police move was hailed by her,the problem faced by Praveen was that she had nothing to fall back on to ekk out living with her two baby girls.
