Sameera was in a relationship of “watta satta”, where her husband was a brother of her own brothers’ wife.
Sameera’s husband was Mikaal Zulfiqar as “Salman”. The incident of Gang rape occurs when Sameera and her brother’s wife were celebrating a birthday party in a restaurant. The situation goes worse when they came outside, some drunken boys attacked Sameera and get her into the car. Sameera’s father can save only one out of both, so he saves his daughter-in-law rather than his own daughter.
The drunken boys brutally raped Sameera and throw away her body. Next day Sameera’s body was found by a sweeper, who safely take Sameera to her home. There the story began for justice against the violence. Sameera’s family didn’t allow her to register a rape case against the criminals. They forced Sameera to get married to Salman. After marriage, Salman’s behavior was not the same. All goes changed in Sameera’s life. Salman blames Sameera for all the mishaps and the situation goes worsen. After all, Salman started physically abusing Sameera.
Sameera was a victim of gang rape and now also a victim of domestic violence. But that’s not the end. She makes herself strong to deal with the situation that was not in favor of her yet. Now she was in a stage where her husband was giving her divorce, there was no reason left for her to live, the only was justice.
Then she decided to register the rape case against the criminals. The police said that the criminals were strong enough, no one can arrest them. Sameera said that she will fight until she sees the rapists in jail. Sameera seems strong enough to fight for her justice. The media was already involved at that time. At the end of the Drama Ruswai games got changed. One of the rapists comes to kill Sameera, but Salman the x-husband of Sameera saves her from dying and got injured by the bullet of the rapist.
