It all started when she took financial help from him to start a clinic. Since then, he had been using all money earned and even took away her ornaments. He seized her passport to prevent her escape to India.

A Yemeni NGO is working to help her and has given her letter to Union Minister V K Singh. She had chopped her partner’s body into multiple parts and dumped it in the water tank of their house last year.

Nimisha was already married to a person from Kerala and they had a child. In 2017, she sent back her husband and child to Kerala.
