The two women, earlier declared kari by a jirga of the Shar community, told the district court on Wednesday that they fear they will be killed if sent back home.
According to a report by Express News, SHO Chakk Police Station Ali Mohammad said that the women feared for their life, which is why the Shikarpur district court had ordered the police to send them to Darul Aman on Wednesday.
SSP Larkana brought the women – Ajeeban and Khursheed – to a sessions court, and later to a family court today. After hearing the statements of the women, the court ordered the police to shift them to Darul Aman.
The women were earlier kidnapped by members of Jatoi community in relation to a three-year old conflict. They were declared kari by a jirga of the Shar community on Tuesday after being released on the intervention of some influential people of the area.
