A man has allegedly abducted and forcibly solemnised the nikkah of a married girl to his younger brother in a remote village of Kaghan valley, police said on Wednesday.
Ghulam Rasool* of Kamal Ban Kaghan told the police that the nikah of his daughter Bisma*, 17, was solemnised with Nadeem Shah* of the same village about four months back and was registered with a local nikah registrar. But due to financial constraints, the rukhsati had been delayed indefinitely. However, his son-in-law, Kareem Shah* of Patan Des village was annoyed over their nikah.
He abducted Nagina with the help of his relatives Ahmed* and Shahid* late Tuesday and forcibly solemnised her nikah with his younger brother Zahid*.
While terming the step “unIslamic”, Sarwar has demanded the police for recovery of his daughter and bringing the culprits to justice.
