A 28-year-old woman experienced the sheer horror when the ex husband abducted her, beat her and raped her and threatened to set her on fire thus put her hair on fire with a lighter.
The new shocking case of domestic violence took place in Corinth, north-eastern Peloponnese, when the 33-year-old ex husband forced the victim in his car and drove towards the Canal where he threatened to throw her over.
While he was driving he beat her. At some deserted road, he stopped the car and put her hair on fire slowly with a lighter in order to force her to take her cloths off. Then he drove the victim to his parents’ house where he raped her.
