A fake 'peer' hammered a nail into a pregnant woman's head after she expressed the need for a male offspring due to her husband's desire for one, it was revealed on Tuesday.

The woman was rushed to Lady Reading Hospital where neurosurgeon Dr Haider confirmed that she was pregnant and had suffered a severe head injury.

The nail was surgically removed from her head.

Dr Haider further stated that the woman claimed she wanted a son because her husband did not like daughters which is why she went to the peer.
