SHC Orders To Stop Movement of Dua Zehra Abroad

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) urged the federal government and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Friday to take action against any attempt to send Dua Zehra abroad after the young Karachi girl claimed to have married of her own free will.

During the previous hearing, the top Sindh court issued a show-cause notice to the acting IG Sindh for the delay in Dua Zehra’s recovery and directed them to produce her during today’s hearing.

However, the police were unable to deliver her today, forcing the court to urge DG FIA to monitor border areas to prevent any attempt to take the girl abroad.

The SHC further ordered the NADRA and the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to freeze the nominated suspects’ bank accounts and national identity cards (NICs).

After acting IG Kamran Fazal was replaced by Ghulam Nabi Memon, the court dismissed the show-cause notice and asked the police to bring the girl to the next hearing on June 10.
