Fatema Sohail ,wife of actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider has alleged that her husband was having an extra-marital affair with a model and on confronting him, the latter physically abused her when she was pregnant.

She made the statement in a detailed post she shared on her unverified Facebook handle( on Sunday night) along with pictures of a bruised face and an FIR to validate her statement.

She wrote, “On 26th Nov 2018, I caught my husband cheating. When I confronted him, instead of being embarrassed he started Beating me. I was pregnant at that time!

“He pulled me from hair, dragged me on floor, kicked me several times, punched me on face & threw me on the wall. I was brutally beaten by my husband,” she added.

She further added that she decided to “make her marriage work for my own child”. “Societal Pressure or my own confidence. I do not know what ..but I decided to make my marriage work for my own child.”

Fatema also claimed that Haider was not present when she delivered their child and alleged that he was with his girlfriend at that time. She said her husband came to meet her two days later only to click pictures to grab public attention.

A month later, she added, she “went to Mohsin’s Home & asked him to take our son’s responsibility where he started beating me again! He refused to do anything for his son,” she claimed.

“I have no idea how I will raise my child on my own …but I know Allah will help me,” Fatema said, adding that “proves are attached”.
