Confused? Here's the full story.
Naseem Ahmed who claims that he loaned his wife to a friend to help him secure a local election has now requested police in Uttarakhand's Udhampur to help him get his spouse back as his friend has refused to honour their agreement.
According to Naseem's testimony to the police, his friend Shafi Ahmed from Uttar Pradesh' Muradabad wanted to win the elections of chairman from his local Bhojpur seat. But since it was reserved for backward classes, Shafi requested Naseem who is from the said reserved category to loan his wife Bibi Rehmet for polls. Eager to help his friend Naseem agreed.
Rehmet went on win the elections. According to their deal, Naseem claims, Shafi was supposed to return his wife back to him after the polls, but even after over a year, he has failed to keep his promise.
