Yaseem also alleged that her husband locked all the doors of the house they were staying in.

"My husband came back to our house and abused my children and locked our house."

Yaseem also revealed the reason behind the entire dispute and said, "My husband helped someone get a job in the University so the students in the Department wrote a letter to the Vice-Chancellor. He accused me of writing the letter." said Yaseem.

Yaseem has registered a case in Aligarh's Civil Lines Police Station.(ANI)
