Her lawyer Naijalkumar who is helping her with the NCW petition says she is seeking three things from the commission right now — medical attention, to pay for her trip to Kerala along with an NCW official and also a commitment for asylum in the future if she requires it.
NCW chairperson Mamta Sharma says the fare is not a problem. "I am not sure if there is a provision for somebody accompanying her to Kerala. I have asked the official concerned to check. I will get her medical check-up done tomorrow," she says.
Kareem is determined to see the battle through, as much for her love for Joseph as for her sense of responsibility towards the people who have suffered for her. "Joney's parents have already spent 14 days in jail, nothing more should happen to them. That is my first priority," Kareem says.
She has no doubts as far as Joseph goes. "I sit and think all day but never for once do I have any doubt that he will be back. He told me he will fight this out. After all that we have been through, if he had to leave me, he would have done so long back," she says calmly.
