Police stop marriages of two underage sisters

MIRPURKHAS: Police stopped the marriages of two underage sisters after a raid on their wedding ceremony in Mubarakabad village near Nafees Nagar within the jurisdiction of the Naukot police station on Friday.

Sub-Inspector Mohammad Shafi, who had been requested by the Sindh Rural Partners Organisation executive director Zahida Detho to intervene in the marriages, said that he recorded statement of the girls’ father and impressed it upon him that if he tried again to marry off his underage daughters, he would go behind bars. Henceforward, the community cancelled the marriage.

Ms Detho told Dawn that after she received information that Mewo Karo Lohar was readying to marry off his underage daughters, she sent messages to the DIG and SSP of Mirpurkhas but did not receive a response in time.

Then she sent a team of volunteers to the village and contacted SI Mohammed Shafi who carried out the raid and stopped the marriages, she said.
