SHC allows Dua Zahra to decide her fate

Earlier, the Sindh High Court (SHC) had allowed Dua to decide where she wants to go, with her parents or husband.

In a three-page written order, Justice Junaid Ghaffar had said the court reached the verdict in line with the testimonies. "In light of all the evidence, this is not a case of kidnapping."

"...the alleged/minor Dua E Zahra Kazmi, pursuant to her statement on Oath and Age Certificate is set at liberty to decide as to whom she intends to reside and go along," the order had read.
