UMERKOT: A woman was attacked by her husband and seven of his accomplices, who pulled her hair and dragged her on road when she was returning from a local court before police came to her rescue on Monday.

Tejhan Bheel, 40, told reporters that she had moved the civil court to seek dissolution of marriage with Herchand Bheel, resident of Vehro Sharif, as she could no more tolerate domestic violence.

Today, she was attacked by eight persons, including her spouse, when she was returning home after attending hearing of the case. They dragged her on the road by pulling by the hair and humiliated her before people, she said.

She said that they were trying to kidnap her but fled when she raised hue and cry, which brought police to her rescue. Police, however, managed to arrest one of the attackers identified as Hemo Bheel.
