How come she suddenly died this way? When she died, instead of informing her parents, her husband Imam Manihar was in a hurry to get a death certificate."
Fahin Khan's sister said that Manihar used to assault her and not give her to eat. She used to allegedly take food parcel from her mother's house daily.
