KARACHI: A woman abandoned four minor girls, all sisters and aged between six and one year, at the Edhi Centre in Sohrab Goth on Sunday morning, charity officials said.
They said that the four sisters — six-year-old Khadija, four-year-old Iqra, three-year-old Masooma, and one-year-old Hadia — were brought to the head office of the Edhi Foundation in Mithadar from the Sohrab Goth office for proper care.
Talking to the media, Khadija said that they were brought here from Punjab by their elder brother, who worked somewhere in Karachi. They were handed over to their maternal aunt here, who left them at the Edhi Centre.
She said that their father, Syed Najam Raza, was an addict and their mother had ‘abandoned’ them back in Punjab.
