What happened:

Dua Zehra, the missing teen girl from Karachi, and her alleged spouse Zaheer Ahmed were produced before the Sindh High Court on June 6 (today), a day after they were shifted to Karachi from Bahawalnagar.

Details:

After the police were unable to produce the girl and her accused husband before a local court due to a protest at the City Court over a dispute between lawyers and court workers, they were taken to the SHC under tight protection. Dua Zehra denied being kidnapped by Zaheer Ahmed and stated that she is 18 years old when the court inquired about her age.

Dua refused to meet parents:

The girl, on the other hand, refused to meet her parents, stating that she wants to stay with Zaheer. The judge responded by adding that the girl is standing in front of them and insisting that she has not been kidnapped. “How can we force her to meet anyone?” Justice Junaid Ghaffar said, adding that he understands the parents’ concerns but the judicial procedure must take precedence.

What’s next:

Justice Ghaffar ordered authorities to conduct Dua Zehra’s medical examination to determine her age and adjourned the case till June 8.
