Dua Zehra Case Background
According to her father, Dua Zehra, a 14-year-old girl, went missing from Karachi’s Korangi district Golden Town area on April 16 after going out of the house to dispose of garbage.
On April 16, Dua’s parents filed a first information report, stating that their daughter had been abducted while leaving the house to dispose of trash.
On April 26, the adolescent girl was found in Okara, Punjab. She stated in a video statement that she was not kidnapped and that she married a young man named Zaheer of her own free will.
The former Sindh police inspector general had urged that the Punjab police bring Dua Zehra because the couple kept shifting their location, making it difficult for the cops to track them down.Dua Zehra: Medical tests reveal
Dua Zehra Medical Tests
Another twist in the case of Dua Zehra, who fled her Karachi home and married Zaheer Ahmed against her will, turns out to be minor after the Sindh High Court ordered a medical examination to determine her age.
The medical expert claimed that the girl is around 16 or 17 years old and is not old enough to get a CNIC after the medico-legal procedure.
The Civil Hospital Karachi’s Age Certificate revealed contradictory information, despite Dua’s earlier video statement in which she claimed to be an adult.
According to local media reports, medical experts at the Civil Hospital Karachi performed an ossification test on a teenager. The test results, however, contradicted Dua’s parents’ claims that she is 14 years old.
Earlier, the country’s southeastern region’s apex court ruled that it wanted to medically determine Dua Zehra’s age and ordered her to be kept in a shelter home.
The couple was recently taken into custody after Dua’s father filed a child disappearance complaint in court.
Seven police teams led by the CIA’s Director of Investigations (DIG) Over the last two weeks, Karim Khan has been searching for the missing couple in various parts of the country. During the investigation, police raided more than 40 locations, detaining at least 16 people.
Sindh police also sought assistance from the Interior Ministry in locating the adolescent after the Sindh High Court (SHC) ordered them to present her in court by June 10.
Dua, on the other hand, denied the abduction story, claiming that she married Zaheer of her own free will. The Karachi teen also claimed to be 18 years old, contradicting her parents’ claims.
