A woman filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday against her parents and brothers for allegedly threatening to throw acid on her and kill her after she married of her own choice.
Sadia, a resident of Islamabad’s Lala Musa Kharian Tehsil, said she married a man of her own choice in April. After the marriage, when she visited her parents, she claimed they stopped her returning to her husband’s house.
She alleged her family members locked her up and took away the money and jewellery that she had.
She said she returned to her husband after leaving her belongings behind and alleged that her family has, since then, threatened to throw acid on her, kidnap her and kill her.
The IHC issued a notice to the Kohsar station house officer on Tuesday (today) and the next hearing of the case is on Wednesday.
