Gujranwala: Solemnising marriage of an underage girl
GUJRANWALA: A sessions judge on Monday summoned a Nikah Khawan for February 18 for solemnising marriage of an underage girl with an old man.
The Aroop police produced 12-year-old Kiran before the judge, who allowed her to go with her parents. The judge flayed Rashid and his wife for marrying their 12-year-old daughter with Saleem for money consideration. It is learnt that the girl’s father is a tenant of accused Saleem and had married his minor daughter in consideration of the house because of poverty. Earlier, in a petition, Rashid alleged that his son-in-law Saleem used to torture his wife Kiran.
