ADANA – Doğan News Agency
The incident occurred in the Narclıca neighborhood of the Seyhan district. The husband, 24, locked the woman, 22, inside the house and did not come back for hours.
The woman then called a locksmith to help her get out, but once she told him she did not have 50 Turkish Liras ($12) on her to pay the fee, he reportedly left the scene without unlocking the door. Upon this, the woman called the 155 police line and asked for help.
“Please do not notify my husband. Do not call him and get me out of here,” said the woman, speaking to the police behind the iron window grills.
Once the woman was saved, she got into the police car and said she could no longer live with her husband, demanding to be taken refuge at a women’s shelter.
The police have launched an investigation to find the missing husband.
