Police hand girl over to old man

JAMSHORO: A 13-year-old girl protested on Friday against her forced marriage with a 70-year-old man at the Dadu police station, but police handed her over to the aged man. According to reports, Hizoran Solangi, daughter of Abdul Rehman Solangi, was sold for Rs 40,000 to Amanullah Burdi for marriage. When the girl raised a hue and cry, the police brought both to the police station, where the parents of the girl said in their statement they had handed their daughter over to Burdi after marriage of her own will. But the girl kept weeping and rejected the statement that she married the old man of her own will. The police however allowed Burdi to take the girl with him.
