In the latest development, the Sindh police investigating officer of the Dua Zehra case on Wednesday implicated the witness in the teenager’s marriage from Lahore. 

He will be brought to Karachi for a two-day transitory remand.

“Asghar’s remand will be extended and we will arrest everyone involved, a 14-year-old girl cannot consent to marriage,” the police said.

The accused is to be tried in Sindh under the Sindh Child Marriage Restraint Act passed in 2014.

In Sindh, the legal age for marriage is 18 years.

The official said that Dua Zehra’s marriage certificate is fake, ’14-year-old girl cannot consent to marriage’.

 

A day earlier, a witness in Dua Zehra’s nikkah was arrested from Lahore.

The nikkah solemnizer of Dua Zehra’s marriage Hafiz Ghulam Mustafa has also been arrested from Lahore.

Earlier on Sunday, in a video statement, Dua Zehra claimed that the Sindh and Punjab Police are trying to threaten and harass her.

“I had informed my parents through a letter regarding the motive behind leaving home and where I was traveling to,” she said.

Dua Zehra alleged that her parents have been lying regarding the matter from day one.

On the other hand, the Sindh High Court (SHC) directed the SSP of District East and SHO Al-Falah Police Station to produce Dua Zehra in court in the next hearing.

A two-member bench of SHC headed by Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro heard the petition filed by Dua’s father, seeking the recovery of a teenage girl.

The court also directed the respondents as well as the prosecutor general Sindh to file comments till May 19.

Dua Zehra had gone missing from Karachi outside her home and later surfaced in Punjab.
