A pregnant woman is on her deathbed after her husband forced to take pills for abortion.
Humaira Begum, d/o Sultan was forced by her husband to take the pills after eight months pregnancy.
Earlier, the man known as ‘Saudia’ married Humaira against her will almost a year back.
Saudia is an influential Tabbe at Bodo para, Hashurata, Maungdaw South.
Saudia told Humaira that unless she married her, her male relatives will be tortured by police. He repeated the same threat after eight months of pregnancy.
When Humaira took the pills, she started bleeding. Now it seems that both the mother and the child will die.
Saudia has threatened Humaira’s family not to disclose the incident.
Influential tabbes often marry girls against their will.
