Former model complains of 'love jihad' 12 years after being in marriage

Rashmi Shahbazker

"I am facing a serious threat to my life, and I am tortured and assaulted too", alleged the model, whose husband owns a farmland on the outskirts of Mumbai. Cops in Maharashtra have launched an investigation into her claims adding that they were also probing the so-called "love jihad" angle.

Meanwhile, the police have registered a complaint against Asif and are investigating the case.

The entire matter came to light after Rashmi called media to her house and showed them the injury marks over her body.

Mumbai: A 42-year-old former model has accused her husband of forcing her to convert to Islam. In the presence of his friend, my husband asked me to convert my religion to Muslim. When she refused, he started physically assaulting her, she has said.

Rashmi also claims that her husband thrashed before she approached the police and after filing an FIR, the cops took the complainant to a hospital where she's now undergoing treatment.

Hindu by birth, Rashmi married Asif 12 years ago, and he had apparently not objected to she continuing to follow Hinduism back then.

Rashmi has claimed Asif pressurises her to convert to Islam by saying "if I don't follow Islam I can't be his wife".

The former model further alleged that her husband has married another woman and both were trying to evict her from the house.

Husband and family brainwashed his son? The victim also alleged that her husband assaulted her, while one of his friends abused and molested her.

As of now, a case has been registered against Rashmi's husband and his friend at the Bandra Police Station under IPC Section 354, 323, 324, 504, 506 and 34.
