A girl was allegedly kidnapped, forcibly married twice before being gang-raped and stripped naked in revenge for her brother’s act.
Sanaullah, 22, son of Noor Muhammad of Mawar Bhattian, had supposedly ran away with the daughter of Mallah of the same village after the families refused to marry them.
In response the girl’s family called a ‘village tribunal’ ( Panchayat) which decreed that Sanaullah’s sister would have to marry Zahid Ali, brother of the girl who had eloped with Sana.
Shortly after, accomplices of Zahid kidnapped Sanaullah’s sister from her house, forcibly married her and divorced her after five days. Later, Zahid and his family had her married to Zahid’s cousin Noor Ahmad. Some days later, four members of Zahid’s family gang-raped her and beat her.
They stripped her naked, tied her to a tree and called her parents to get their daughter back in return for their girl.
