Peshawar: Girl seeks protection
PESHAWAR: A girl on Monday sought protection from threats by her parents for marrying a youth of her choice. Ms Kainat of Ganj Peshawar, speaking at a press conference at Peshawar press club on Monday, said she married a young man, Jamal Khan of University Town, a month ago to avoid unfair treatment by her parents.
“But my parents are sending me life threats since then,” the girl said, adding, she had been living with her ‘in-laws’. She said the police arrested her husband and sent him to prison on complaint of her parents, adding, the report about her kidnapping was wrong and demanded release of her ‘husband’.
