On Sunday, as the woman woke up from coma, her statement was taken. In her written statement, Mohsina said that on November 16, when she was sleeping with her children, her husband Shamim came home and started abusing and thrashing her.
“Shamin came home at around 12 am and started thrashing me. He kept beating me till 4 am. Meanwhile, my father-in-law and mother-in-law also came in to check on us. When at around 7 am, when I was about to sleep, I saw Shamim and Saleem, the brother in-law, trying to slit my daughter’s throat with a knife. When I tried to intervene, they cut my finger with the knife,” the woman said.
The woman also alleged in her statement that when she tried to intervene again, the two men slit her throat. Medical reports, however, indicate that the woman’s wounds were “self-inflicted”. Meanwhile, the police are probing the case from all angles.
Earlier on November 17, Mohsina’s family had levelled similar allegations against Shamim, his elder brother Saleem and mother.
