RAWALPINDI: Amongst the news of several tragedies surfacing, another hideous crime has occurred where a former husband tortured his ex-wife and later hacked her nose off in Rawalpindi’s Gojar Khan area on Thursday.

The victim, 32-year-old M* from Mirpur in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) was visiting her relative’s house in Dalmi, Gojar Khan where her ex-husband, Taj Din, was present. Taj Din and his accomplices tortured her and cut off her nose, according to Express News.

The injured woman has been shifted to the hospital where her condition has stabilized.

M* said in her statement to the police that she had divorced Taj Din, who also resided in Mirpur and married Ghulam Farid of Gujarat eight months ago. She also mentioned that the assailant, along with his abetters, forcibly took her to Mirpur from Gujarat.

She further added that on the evening of July 27th Taj Din took her to Dhok Major, Rawat to visit a family member with his sister. However, the assailant later took her to an unidentified space where two more unknown individuals were present.

“Taj Din tied up my hands and feet and cut off my nose with a dagger,” she said as she also mentioned that he also tried to cut off her foot.

When her husband came to rescue her, the assaulter called the police, who later gave the custody of the woman over to the assaulter, since her husband did not possess a marriage certificate at the time. The criminals fled the scene only after a cry was raised.

Muhammad Ahsan Younis, Central Police Office (CPO) of Rawalpindi directed the SP Saddar to register a case against the accused and ordered his immediate arrest. The CPO promptly said, “Violence, abuse, and exploitation of women is absolutely intolerable.”

A case has been registered against the assailant under sections 334, while 148 and 149 have been added to the lawsuit relating to injuries and bodily harm, the police stated. They also said that raids were carried out in order to find the assailant and his accomplices.

“The Rawalpindi police has a zero-tolerance policy against the accused involved in such heinous crimes,” the CPO maintained, “The ruthless accused responsible for this tragic incident will be arrested and sentenced.”

For privacy reasons, the identity of the survivor has been shielded.
