Six Afghans held over marriage of teenaged girl

CHARSADDA: The police arrested six persons for the marriage of a teenage girl to settle a feud between two Afghan families, official sources said on Monday.

The sources said that two Afghan families have had enmity for the last 17 years. Afzal Khan, Amin Khan and Khanzada Khan were accused of killing one Mazara. A Jirga decided that three girls from the family of the accused would be given in ‘Swara’ to the victim’s family.

At the time of the Jirga’s decision, there were only two girls in the family of the accused. Therefore, the Jirga decided that after the birth of the third girl in the family, one would be given to the victim family.

The official said four years after the Jirga decision, Memona was born to the accused family who was married into the victim’s family when she was 13. Memona was being taken to Afghanistan in a car when she started shouting near a police checkpost in Bochay in Tangi Tehsil. The police stopped the car and the girl informed them that she was married against her will. The police arrested the brothers of the girl and Jirga members and registered a case against them.
