JHELUM: The Jhelum district Police on Thursday arrested a man for marital rape and sodomy.

According to the police, a case was registered against the man under Section 377 (unnatural offences) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) after the woman ‘N’ came to the police station and revealed her husband’s bestiality.

She told the police that her husband had warned her to not reveal his actions to anyone, and threatened to murder her if anyone found out. The woman further added that her husband had given her a verbal divorce twice in the past: first in April 2016 and the second time in December 2017.
