MINGORA, 05 May: A resident of Swat has demanded of the authorities concerned to hand over his daughter, presently residing in a shelter home, to him.

Addressing a press conference here today, Khana Gul said his 14-year-old daughter was shifted to Darul Aman after she was recovered from the illegal custody of a local influential.

He said that police concerned were not letting him meet his daughter while the 51-year-old accused, recently released on bail, has told them that he wants to marry his daughter, he said. But Khana Gul says he doesn’t want to marry his daughter with the accused rather he wants to get the custody of his daughter.

“We are running pillar to post but nobody appeared to be ready to help us. My wife has developed cardiac disease due to what happened to our daughter. We want the authorities to arrange our meeting with our daughter and finally she should be handed over to us,” he said. .

Police, however, said that the case is pending before the court and without the orders of the court they cannot let anybody meet the girl in question.
