CHITRAL: Coordinator KP and district officer of Pakistan International Human Rights Organization,(PIHRO) led by Additional Deputy Commissioner Disaster and Human Rights Chitral Abdul Wali Khan, rescued a deeply disabled woman and her four-year-old daughter from her husband’s atrocities. ۔ The land was transferred by her parents in the name of a disabled girl belonging to the Gujar tribe, a resident of Gehrit village. A other Gujar man married her to take over the land. He continued to abuse her and tried to kill her four-year-old daughter.
The cruel husband continued to torture the disabled girl, who was beaten and mentally disabled too , but the man divorced her and took a four-year-old daughter from her. The husband did not give anything to this divorced wife either to his daugher.
Alam Khan district officer PIHRO lower Dir said that his organization received a complaint from Dir Khal village that a four-year-old girl was being tortured by her father and stepmother who were trying to kill her by keeping her hungry and thirsty. We took immediate action and registered a case against her and approached the local court on which the apex court ordered to hand over the girl to her mother. The mother and daughter were brought to their ancestral home at Chitral . Social Welfare Officer Nusrat Jabeen and Darulaman Project Manager Asia Ajmal, PIHRO Provincial Coordinator Meraj Muhammad and District Officer Alam visited the homes of the two affected women under the supervision of Additional Deputy Commissioner Disaster and Human Rights Abdul Wali Khan.
On this occasion, he assured that when Darul Aman is completed, this woman and her innocent daughter will be shifted there. Her ex-husband had built a house on her father’s paternal land, but the house is now in her brother’s possession, where she lives with her brother, wife and children, including her daughter. She and her baby need to be legally protected so that they will not be deported in the future.
The victim told the media that my husband had been abusing/torturing me and had beaten me and broken my bones. He revealed that he was also begging from me and was trying to kill my daughter with me so that he took in possession of my property.
PIHRO District Officer Dir Lower Alam Khan Yousafzai told media that they received another complaint that a woman from Kuju area of Chitral was married to 80-year-old Baba Wilayat Shah in Swabi. She was handed over to Baba for Rs 272,000. When we investigated, it was a complete violation of law, sharia and local customs. The girl was married to him without seeing her husband. We took back the money. He gave his share to the girl and the husband. He said that in this case, the case could have been registered under the provisions of fraud and human trafficking, but we resolved the matter amicably because The girl had earlier been married in Karak district with whom she had two children, but after getting divorced from there, she was again married to an old man.
Since the girl did not want to live with this old man because she had not seen him, we separated the two by mutual understanding and the money was divided equally between the two. He warned the girl’s relatives not to marry her in the future without her consent. He urged the people of Chitral to avoid pimps and not allow their daughters to get married in other districts without proper invistigations so that they do not face any difficulties.
On this occasion, ADC Abdul Wali Khan, Nusrat Jabeen, Asiya Ajmal, SHO of Koghazi Police Station Wali Khan were also given certificates of appreciation for their excellent performance by the human rights organization. Locals people also thanked ADC Abdul Wali Khan, Nusrat Jabeen, Meraj Muhammad, Alam Khan, Asiya Ajmal and their organizations for their efforts in resolving the issue through mutual understanding without a court of law.
