Ayesha Jahanzeb’s husband arrested after domestic violence complaint

The husband, Haris, has now been sent on a remand

Prominent Pakistani television anchorperson Ayesha Jahanzeb has accused her husband of domestic violence, leading to his arrest and subsequent court appearance.

In her statement to the police, Jahanzeb alleged that her husband, Haris, had physically assaulted her on multiple occasions this year, claiming it happened three to four times.

The anchor revealed that Haris had secretly married another woman, which fueled his violent behavior towards her.

Jahanzeb stated that she had tried to salvage her marriage but the abuse continued, resulting in severe injuries. She has now decided to pursue legal action against her husband.

Based on Jahanzeb’s complaint, the police registered a case at the Sarwar Road police station and subsequently arrested Haris.

He was then presented before a judicial magistrate, who granted the police a two-day physical remand of the accused.

This is Jahanzeb’s second marriage. During a previous show, Jahanzeb had disclosed that her mother had pressured her into remarrying after she was diagnosed with cancer.

While Jahanzeb initially resisted, she eventually succumbed to her mother’s wishes.

The TV host had also revealed that Haris was her only male friend before they married.
