“Many reports about cruel domestic violence cases from various districts of Kashmir division have reached our grievances cell. Such a trend is extremely troubling and people must come forward to stop such evil practices. Women are no commodity or possession but rather they too are human beings who should be entitled to live a dignified life,” she said.
