After marriage, Jasim and his relatives allegedly tortured her and put pressure on her to convert to Islam. The accused persons threatened to kill the woman for refusing to give in, sources said.
The woman somehow escaped from the house of her in-laws in the evening of 12th February last and reached her parental house. She said she did not want to go back to her matrimonial house. She sought legal action against her in-laws and security for her parents and herself, sources said.
