The Sindh High Court on Monday declared the kidnapped Christian girl as 13-year-old after the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) submitted documents confirming her age to be only 13 in the Arzoo Raja case.
Furthermore , the court also declared that Arzoo will remain in shelter home till next hearing.
The next hearing has been set after couple of weeks from today. Jibran Nasir in a tweet said that the court is yet to decide on the matter whether the girl has the ability to decide about converting to another religion or not given her age of 13.
Talking to media along with their lawyer, the girl’s parents thanked the court for the judgement and hoped that justice will be served. Moreover, the court also directed to take action against those who constituted the child marriage and also forged documents to show her more than her actual age.
