GUJAR KHAN: A Pakistani woman of American origin was allegedly tortured by her in-laws in Sukha area of Jhelum on Monday.
According to the victim, she landed in Pakistan on Nov 28 and went to visit her in-laws with her mother and a driver, who went back after dropping her.
She said that she had estranged relations with her in-laws and they tried to snatch her infant daughter and also took away her $7,000 and her mobile phone.
She further said that her in-laws including her father-in-law dragged her into a room and attempted to lynch her, and tear her clothes but she managed to escape. She told police that she had married to Zohaib a couple of years ago and got her husband visa cancelled after their relationship became estranged, which annoyed her husband and the in-laws and they wanted to kill her.
The woman called her mother and went to the office of the district police chief where her case was listened to by SP Investigations and ordered registration of a case against the in-laws but the suspects were not being arrested.
