I started speaking for self-defence that one soldier burnt my hands by his cigarette.In jail ,we were tortured by sexual torments. After 1 month ,my father got satisfied to bring me out from jail bcause, he preferred his position instead of me .he is very religious and works for regime.he kicked me out from his house for holding his position.
