Husband, relatives shave woman’s head

KARACHI: The Malir police arrested three men who were accused of shaving a woman’s head, blackening her face and then forcing her to parade in front of the entire neighbourhood.
According to details, Sakeena Jogi, 30, a resident of Hasan Panhwar Goth in Malir, was physically tortured by her husband, Leemoon Jogi, her father, Naathu alias Mastaanu, and six other accomplices. The accused then urinated on her head before shaving it and later blackened her face and forced her to parade in front of the entire goth. She was later released after being warned with a death threat against complaining about the entire incident. However, Sakeena approached SSP Malir Javed Maher with her children and told him that when she refused the demands of her family to carryout immoral acts. She said that on the orders of the goth’s wadera, Ghani Panhwar, her family subjected her to inhuman torture and humiliation.
After Sakeena’s complaint, SSP Maher, under the supervision of SPO Sukhan Jabbar Qaimkhani, formed a police team that raided the goth and arrested Naathu and two other relatives, Khamu and Ahmad, and registered cases against them. However, Naathu has denied the allegations. According to SPO Qaimkhani, all the accused are Sakeena’s family members, adding that Sakeena had lied about wadera Panhwar because she feared that he would have helped the accused if she had registered cases only against them. He said that he has mentioned the same in the FIR.
