Suspecting her illicit affair a BSF jawan shaved the head of his wife and roughed her up. After she was rescued by the neighbours, the housewife Ajgari Bibi, 28 lodged a written complaint against her husband Rafiqul Sheikh with Manikchak police station today. The accused BSF jawan fled after the incident and could not be arrested.
In her written complaint to police Ajgari Bibi has alleged that she was married to Rafiqual Sheikh of Sayedpur village under Manikchak police station five years ago. The couple has a 14-month old kid too. Sheikh, who is now posted in Punjab as a BSF jawan, reportedly suspected that his wife had an illicit affair with some youths of the locality.

Police said that a probe was started. The accused ran away.
