Both Husband and wife were passing away their time while watching Television at the comfort of their home out of their busy schedule, they were absorbed watching Television when mobile phone of wife rang up,they both looked at it where the name “Bushra” was blinking on mobile screen for quite sometime; the wife looked at the name but did not respond to the call. When asked by her husband why she was not picking up the call she said she will call her afterward. That made husband suspicious and he grabbed the phone from her and dialed back the number, to his surprise there was no female but a male person on the other side of the line who very warmly attended the call little realizing perhaps that the caller himself was a male and not female.
Now the husband became extremely brutal. The verbal altercation between husband and wife turned violent and the husband resorted to thrashing his wife ferociously paying no heed to her yelling.In a bid to save herself, the woman turned back violently and precisely at that moment a twelve inches long piece of glass pierced through her breasts and as she was being taken to the hospital, she breathed her last and pronounced dead upon reaching the hospital
After husband overcame the shock of his wife’s death, he scrutinized the issue more closely. It was revealed that his wife’s friend Bushra possessed that number sometime back but while she proceeded abroad she switched off the number and lost her SIM abroad. The Telecom operator meanwhile issued the number to some other customer in one year time who upon Bushra’s return from abroad pretended to be her husband when he received the call of that (late) lady. Every time he would pretend that Bushra was in washroom and take liberty with the lady by pretending to be Bushra’s husband.
The more the lady tried to severe her contacts with that impostor the greater resistance she met with every time. However she could not dare to discuss the issue with her husband because of his suspicious nature as he would instantly deprive her of her cell phone which she could not afford to do as her mother was severally ill in her native village and that was the only source of contact with her ailing mother. The lady also could not afford to block that number due to the fact that her own number had been issued on CNIC of her husband and unless her husband makes the request the mobile company was not expected to oblige her.
Now that number was in use of a university student who received the call of that lady and made desperate attempts to trap her in his vicious circle. It is a common practice these days that university students, jobless persons and frustrated youth used to send SMS messages to scores of telephone numbers simultaneously and make utmost effort to befriend ladies who respond to these SMS messages or calls. Such adventure may end up in tragic incident as well as happened in case of this unfortunate lady. Should such incident occurs with you , you are requested to fully listen to feminine point of view and do not give knee jerk reaction lest any tragic incident should hit you.
