Underage marriage case: Girl’s father, three others sent to jail

GUJRANWALA: Magistrate Yasir Hayat sent the father of a 12-year-old girl, who was forcibly married to a 45-year-old man, and three others to jail on Tuesday. Earlier, the police produced the girl’s father Arshad, former husband Saleem and witnesses Siddique and Latif in court. However, the Nikkahkhawan is still absconding. Arshad had married off his daughter Kiran Shahzadi to Saleem on the promise of getting a house, in which he was living on rent, transferred in his name.
