There was a window in the room which was closed all day but at night Sajita would open the window and go out and come back to the room after a while.
According to media reports, the two had been living like this for the last 11 years, but three months ago, Sajita left the house for unknown reasons and on the same day, Rehman also fled after quarreling with his family.
