Sunita met Salman, owner of Bombay Stationers, in 2006 in Aminabad. They both fell in love and later he converted her religion and performed Nikah. After that they started living together in a flat near Akbari Gate. Salman used to visit his home often. In 2008, he married a Muslim girl whom he kept at his home in Peer Jaleel Golagunj.

In 2015, Salman married another Muslim girl and kept her in another house. Soon he reduced his visits to Shaheen (Sunita).

When Shaheen came to know about his other two marriages, she protested. He used to physically assault her. Troubled Shaheen filed complaint against Salman in the Police Station. She also filed a suit in the family court which is under consideration. After this, Salman started threatening her. Infact, Salman never used to give her the maintenance money that was fixed by the court. 

The couple has an 8-year old daughter and Shaheen is eight-months pregnant with another child. She had no money to even visit the doctor for checkup. When she approached Salman for asking to provide money, she was manhandled by him, his mother, brother and brother’s wife, who abused and pushed her.

Salman had also been forcing her to withdraw the case against him. Thus, he used to threaten and harass her.

She has filed a case against Salman in women’s police station.
