LAHORE: A local court in Lahore on Tuesday sent Dua Zahra, who had made headlines across the country after she had mysteriously disappeared from Karachi in April but later declared that she had run away from her home to marry 21-year-old Zaheer, to a shelter home.

As per the details, Dua Zahra appeared before a magistrate’s court and claimed that her life is in danger from her parents who used to beat her in the past.

“My parents are giving me threats of dire consequences,” she said and pleaded to the court that she wanted to go to the shelter home.

Taking to Twitter, Head of Prime Minister of Pakistan’s Strategic Reforms Salman Sufi said that the Punjab government has secured Dua Zahra at Dar ul Aman under strict security and protection after a court order.

He requested the Sindh government to dispatch a child protection bureau team to take Dua to her parents. “Zaheer is being traced for arrest,” Salman Sufi added.
