Mrs. Kareeb, a 37-year old building materials dealer said that due to theÂ nature of her job, she entertains lots of customers both male and female, but her husband does not want to understand as he always accused her ofÂ having affairs with the male visitors and when she tried to explain her relationship with them, he beats her up.
She also claimed that her husband is fond of cursing her while she claimed that he possesses local charms which he ties around his waist and because of this, she said she refused to have sex with him.
