LAHORE: A Sessions court judge dismissed an application on Wednesday filed by a man who had married a 14-year old girl, after she confirmed to be in illegal custody.

The victim, through her counsel Advocate Sheeba Qaiser, told the judge that she wanted to live with her parents and not with Amir, the man who had abducted her from her parents’ house and married her forcibly.

Amir, a local resident, had filed an application that he had married (A) but her parents had taken her away.
