  • “I am very happy,” 14-year-old Nimra Kazmi says.
  • She went missing last week from Karachi's Saudabad area.
  • Girl says she tied the knot on April 18.

KARACHI: 14-year-old Nimra Kazmi — who went missing last week from Karachi's Saudabad area — has been traced in Dera Ghazi Khan, the police officials said Monday.

However, they said Kazmi had "willingly" tied the knot.

The disappearance of the girl was the second case after a teenager of the same age, Dua Zehra Kazmi, went missing from Karachi's Al Falah on April 10, but police have not yet been able to recover her.

In a video statement that surfaced today, Kazmi said that nobody had kidnapped her and that she tied the knot willingly. “I am very happy,” she said, adding that she got married on April 18.

She also requested to remove her videos from social media.

Earlier in the day, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said that the police were taking measures to recover the missing girl from Saudabad.

The missing girl's mother had said that she left her home at last week 9am to go to work but when she returned, her daughter was not at home. Despite frantically searching for Nimra, she was nowhere to be found.

Providing details about her daughter, the grief-stricken mother — a resident of the Saudabad read — had said that Nimra was a grade-10 student and was preparing for her final exams.
