According to the police, the case has been registered under sections of Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Ordinance and IPC Sections 498A, 406, 323.

"They kept demanding something or the other. Whatever my father could arrange, he provided it to them. But they either wanted electronics or furniture. When I got a job offer, I told my in-laws that I will contribute financially to the family as well. They took money from me. Everything was fine," she said.

Meanwhile, Sakeena got pregnant and went to her mother's house in Mumbra for delivery. "I went to my parents' house in Mumbra after which they [in-laws] never accepted me back," she said.

"Since I wanted my marriage to work, I went back to stay with my in-laws on my parent's suggestion. However, I was continuously harassed, tortured and beaten by them for dowry," Sakeena said.
