(TWO CIRCLES) Srinagar - Without giving her any idea about where she was, the husband literally threw her out of a truck on the Srinagar-Leh highway at Wussan village in north Kashmir's Ganderbal district.
The husband, a truck driver, had brought her to Ganderbal from Baramulla district nearly 110 kilometres away from his home.
The story of Tahmina (name changed) is an eye-opener for all who celebrate International Women's Day and the rights "granted" to women in a male-dominated World.
