The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday ordered the production of the Hindu girl who was allegedly abducted and forced to convert and marry a Muslim boy.
Petitioner Raj Kumar alleged that his niece, Rinkle Kumari, was abducted by Naveed Shah on February 25th from the Mirpur Mathelo area and was later forcibly married to Naveed after being made to convert her religion. The petitioner claimed that the statement of the detainee before the judicial magistrate was not voluntarily as family members of the detainee were not allowed to attend the court proceedings.
He requested the court to order for the production of the girl and to record her statement in the presence of her family members. The court was also requested to shift the detainee to Darul Aman till the petition had been decided. A single bench of the SHC, headed by Chief Justice Mushir Alam, issued a notice to Inspector General (IG) Sindh, Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Ghotki and others, which ordered for them to produce the girl in court on March 12th.
