A monstrous husband has been accused of keeping his wife in a torture chamber, and subjecting her to horrific abuse just a month after she gave birth.
The Turkish man was arrested after allegedly pulling out his wife's fingernails with pliers in the specially-built room.
Ilyas Arik, 28, had allegedly savagely beaten his wife just 15 days before he placed her in a torture chamber.
Syrian-born Mirvet Nivej, 28, ran away from Arik, which made him furious – he then threatened if she did not come back he would never let her see their 40-day-old baby, it has been claimed.
When she came back, he allegedly tied her up torture chamber on the roof of their home in the south-eastern Turkish city of Urfa and proceeded to torture her.
The suspect even shared photos of the alleged abuse with people online as if he was proud of what he was doing.
He has since been arrested and an indictment has been prepared by prosecutors demanding imprisonment of up to 34 years.
According to the news source DHA, Mirvet Nivej was subjected to days of violence after being tied to a chair, beaten with sticks, and having her fingernails pulled out by pliers.
One of the people he shared pictures with was a work colleague and the victim’s supervisor where he wrote: "Look how bad I beat this woman."
It is unclear why he shared the pictures, but the supervisor forwarded the image to the police and filed a complaint.
When the torturer realised the police were on their way, he threw the victim on the street and went on the run on 7th October.
However, he was later caught and arrested and is currently being held in custody.
The indictment against Ilyas Arik was reportedly accepted by the Criminal Court of First Instance.
The indictment said that chains, screwdrivers, pliers, keys, and sticks were as weapons used during the alleged torture.
Meanwhile, the victim remains in hospital while her baby is being cared for by social services.
The investigation continues.
