Later on, the woman called up 181 Abhayam Helpline from where a counsellor came to her home in Bavla and tried to make her husband understand that he should treat his wife properly.

But her husband did not pay any heed to the advice and asked his wife to leave home.

Later, the woman approached Viramgam town police and filed an FIR of domestic violence.

The complainant, who has been married for 15 years, stated in her FIR that her husband, who works with Western Railway as a clerk, beat her very often on petty issues.

“When I got married my husband’s elder brother and sister-in-law used to stay with us. Since the beginning of our married life, my husband’s brother and sister-in-law used to provoke my husband to torture me,” the woman stated. “I had kept quiet for long for the future of my two children,” said the complainant.

Later, the couple moved to Shastrinagar in Ahmedabad city but the intervention of in-laws and her husband’s torture continued there.

Due to some personal issues, the couple then moved to Bavla where the woman’s torture continued.

On Sunday, the woman felt all limits had been crossed when her husband grabbed her hair and banged her head on a wall, stated the FIR filed with Viramgam town police.
