When sister of the informant went to her matrimonial home, accused persons started harassing her and also assaulted her. Her husband Israr desired carnal intercourse against the order of nature with the sister of the informant, to which Shabnam (victim) refused. Israr assaulted his sister. She lost her eyesight. She became visually handicapped. Israr started making a plan to marry another girl. After some reprieve, she was ousted from her matrimonial home. On 22.06.2010, at 8:00 pm, accused persons again came to the informant's house and demanded Rs. 50,000/-.
