She said, “Since we got married, he has been having sex with me regularly. I never expected this as my parents did not tell me that he would be having sex with me frequently as he was doing.
“It was too much for me and I got tired of this. As I could no longer bear frequent sex that he was having with me, I took a knife and stabbed him to prevent further sex,” Salma added.
