Karachi: A court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of a man facing charges of holding a teenage girl in captivity at his home in Keamari.
The girl, Aisha Anwar, refused to go back to Khanzada’s home, saying he was a fraud and she would not accept him as her husband as she did not marry him.
Answering a query from the judge, the girl said she worked at a factory when Khanzada, her supervisor, pretended to be a bachelor, but later she came to know that he had two wives and nine children.
She said she refused to marry to him, but he forcibly detained her in his house. Later, she managed to escape from captivity and lodged a case against him.
The accused was arrested on charges of kidnapping the girl. He filed a bail application in the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge (West) Noshaba Qazi. He took the plea that he had married the girl.
State counsel Altaf Memon opposed the bail application, and asked the court to treat Khanzada as a suspect who had violated human rights of the girl. The court rejected the bail plea.
