Karachi: A Pakistani court on Thursday did not allow a Hindu girl to leave a shelter home and go with her parents despite medical tests confirming that she was 16 years old when forcibly abducted, converted to Islam, and married her abductor, in Sindh province. The girl was abducted on August 12 from Sindh’s Hyderabad city and was recovered and sent to a safe home on October 20 altering a court ruling. The court ordered a medical examination to determine the girl’s age as her alleged husband submitted a marriage certificate showing that she was 19 years of age. But medical tests confirmed she was 16 years old.
