Domestic violence case: Women’s Commission takes cognizance

The State Commission for Women has taken cognizance of a news report on domestic violence published in Greater Kashmir on Thursday.

Referring to the story, ‘Women beaten by husband, locked up’ chairperson Women’s Commission, Nayeema Mehjoor said, “we have spoken to the police, but they said that the victim’s husband is evading arrests. The culprits many a times do it, but for long will they evade arrest.”

“We have also tried to contact the victim to understand this case,” Nayeema said. 

To mention, Zarina (name changed), a 25-year-old woman from Karfali Mohalla in Downtown was “beaten” by her husband who fractured both her arms and locked her up in a room. But a neighbour helped Zarina to escape from the house, but she couldn’t take her son along, as she could barely move her swelled arms.

Zarina’s family members lodged an FIR against Arif Sofi, her husband, on 12th November. Police has booked him for assaulting a woman and voluntarily causing hurt and criminal intimidation.
