KARACHI: Wishing to get married turned into a nightmare for a Karachi couple after their families ended up fighting and the girl's father bit off a finger of the boy's dad during the clash, Geo News reported Wednesday, citing the police. 

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) West Suhai Aziz said that the incident took place at 11:30am in the Gulshan-e-Zia area of Orangi Town, which falls within the limits of Pakistan Bazar Police Station.

According to the police, Muhammad Hussain, the boy's father, said that a girl —identified as Nabila — lived in his neighbourhood and was a classmate of his son, Muhammad Suleiman.

Nabila started liking Suleiman and wanted to marry him, Hussain told the police, adding that the girl visited their house and spoke to the boy's mother, insisting they get the couple married. 

According to Hussain, he explained to the girl that since his son doesn't work, they could not get him married yet. 

Meanwhile, the girl's father  Nadeem — along with his brother Aleem — reached Hussain's house and started beating Suleiman. 

Hussain said the two brothers grabbed his wife by the hair and dragged her which tore her clothes. 

While Hussain was trying to rescue his wife and son, Nadeem bit off Hussain's finger, the police said. 

The police added that the injured Hussain was provided medical aid at the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and a medico-legal report was lodged, after which police registered a first information report (FIR) and arrested both Nadeem and Aleem.
