Indian woman reports husband to police over wife battering
Dubai, April 24 (UNI) An Indian woman reported her husband to the Bahraini police for allegedly beating her with a stick when they argued about who should go to a pharmacy to collect her medicine.
The 46-year-old told the Gulf Daily News that she suffered a fractured finger and was left with marks all over her body from the alleged attack, which was only stopped by the intervention of her sister.
Meanwhile, the family with two children has a history of conflict and the incident comes just two months after the woman's husband reported his wife and daughter to the police when blows were exchanged because he brought home the wrong food.
However, the 48-year-old husband said he hit her back to defend himself, but then his wife started to attack him so he fled the house.
Later, he went to the police and reported the incident because, he said, his wife had reported him to the police up to 15 times during their 25 years of marriage.
The names of the couples were not revealed.
