A Bengaluru woman residing in UAE requested authorities on Twitter in the country and India to help her return to the country, accusing her husband Mohammed Khizar Ullah of domestic abuse.
Bengaluru: The Indian Consulate in Dubai and Sharjah Police on Thursday arrested a man after a Bengaluru woman, living in Sharjah, accused her husband of domestic abuse on Twitter and requested for help. The woman alleged that her husband Mohammed Khizar Ullah had been abusing her and urged UAE and Indian authorities to help her exit the country.
