KUWAIT CITY, June 15: An unidentified Kuwaiti woman has filed a complaint with the police accusing her husband of torturing her, holding her captive inside the sixth floor apartment of a residential building in Khaitan, reports Al-Anba daily.
The woman was rescued after a Saudi man who was passing by happened to see pieces of paper on the ground on which was written, ‘I am in distress, I am being tortured and held captive by my husband on the sixth floor apartment’. The woman had scribbled the words and may have thrown them from the bathroom window.
Many people may have seen the piece of paper and thought it was a joke, but not the Saudi man, who took the issue seriously and informed the Khaitan Police Station. Securitymen from the Khaitan Police Station moved to the location and rescued the woman and took the husband into custody, although he tried to convince the police that his wife was unsound and behaving abnormal. However, medical reports confirmed that she has been subjected to prolonged assault and injuries required treatment for more than 21 days.
