Bulandshahr May 25 (PTI) A man along with his two accomplices has been booked for allegedly trying to kill his estranged wife whom he had married after forcing her to convert to his religion, police said on Wednesday.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that Abbas trapped her in his love and married her after forcing her to convert to his religion by blackmailing her on the strength of some obscene photographs of hers that he had shot.

She also had a son from the wedlock, she said, adding that Abbas, however, began beating her up soon after the marriage following which she left him and began living separately.
