Dua Zehra went missing from Karachi when she went out of her house for some chores. The incident shook the whole nation as they called for Dua’s recovery as soon as possible. After a few days, Dua was recovered from Lahore where she had married 21 years old Zaheer Ahmed out of her own free will.
Dua’s father filed a case in Lahore High Court and claimed that his daughter is only 14 years old. He said that his daughter’s claim of being 18 years old is not true. He wanted to take her back while his daughter was claiming that her and her husband Zaheer Ahmed’s lives are in danger and her parents, Sindh police and Punjab police will be responsible.
Lahore High Court has today declared the nikkahnama of the couple bogus as legal age for marriage in Punjab is 16 years while in Sindh it is 18 years. The Qazi who performed the nikkah has been apprehended while Dua will be handed over to Sindh police. Her father shared the news with all the happiness in the world:
People are happy about the new direction the case has taken and were seen congratulating Dua’s father:
