“My life is in danger”, claims Dua Zehra
Dua Zehra, who went missing from Karachi last month and later emerged after solemnising a free-will marriage in Punjab, on Sunday feared that she could be killed.
“My life is in danger, I came to Lahore from Karachi of my own free will. I got married of my own free will. The law of the land allows me to go wherever I want,” Dua said.
According to Dua Zehra, “I had recorded a statement in the court in favor of my husband. Despite this, Sindh and Punjab police are harassing me and my husband and are looking for us illegally. Sindh police want to kidnap me and my husband and take me back to Karachi, so if anything happens to us, Sindh Police, Punjab Police and my parents will be responsible.”
Dua Zehra also claimed that she had informed her parents about her whereabouts and the reason behind abandoning home through a letter.
She said whatever her parents are telling from the first day is a total lie.
Dua Zahra said that my in-laws are very decent and they are even better than my parents.
Earlier, the father of Dua Zahra has approached the Sindh High Court for the recovery of his daughter.
On Thursday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) directed the authorities to produce the teenager before the court in the next hearing. In the petition, Dua’s father had pleaded before the court that his daughter was forcibly married as she was only 14 according to the record of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).
