Gandhinagar: A woman in Gujarat’s Mehasana had her husband arrested frequently and arranged for his release afterwards, reports say.

Fight kept breaking out even as they came back to live together, according to the report.
Premchand was arrested every year from 2016 to 2018 as Sonu complained and each time she secured his release.
When he was jailed in 2019 and 2020 over not paying alimony, she rescued him each time.

Sonu got him released on July 4 and took him to their home in Kadi, report said.
Later, Premchand confronted his wife complaining that his wallet and phone were missing. She denied wrongdoing but they argued and fought assaulting each other.
Premchand went to live with his mother in Patan and lodged a complaint, accusing Sonu and their son of harming him.
