Bologna, July 16 - A restraining order in Bologna
was placed on a 30-year-old Pakistani man whose jealous behavior
led to a suicide attempt by his young fiancee, investigators
said on Tuesday.
The Pakistani woman, not yet 20, decided to leave the man
her family had arranged for her to marry, due to his
oppressively possessive behavior, like barring her from using
her computer or going out with her female friends.
In response, the man threatened to ''dishonour'' her if she
did not stay with him, vowing to show her father intimate
pictures of her taken prior to matrimony.
But when the woman's parents learned the situation, they
supported their daughter's desire to cut off the relationship.
The father even travelled to Pakistan to return the dowry
that he had received prior to the wedding as part of Islamic
custom.
The young woman had been pushed to attempted suicide, which
led to the intervention of Bologna police.
The woman showed courage enough to press charges against
her jealous ex-fiancé, and investigators found photos and
threatening text messages in his possession.
A Bologna judge issued a restraining order against the man
for aggravated stalking.
If the man contacts the woman or any of her relatives, he
will be arrested.
But in the meantime, the man's residency permit has
expired, and his legal entanglement means it may not be renewed.
