Victim of domestic violence finds refuge at Karachi women's police station
The facility’s management found the girl’s uncles and sent her to their house but her uncles refused to take her in.
A newlywed girl from Nawab Shah reportedly found refuge at a women’s police station in the metropolis’ west zone, after her abusive husband abandoned her. The girl, a resident of Qazi Ahmed Road in Nawab Shah district of Sindh, said:
I was married to a man named Ahmed six months ago. Within a few weeks, my husband kicked me out of the house. I had no choice but to leave and come to Karachi.
The authorities at the Liaquatabad women’s police station took her in and admitted her to a shelter home in Karachi’s Central district. Following this, the women’s police station staff started searching for the young girl’s family. The girl told the police station authorities:
My mother died, and my brother passed away two and a half years ago. I have no idea where my father is.
According to details, the facility’s management found the girl’s uncles and sent her to their house. However, her uncles refused to take her in. Since then, the victim of domestic violence has had nowhere permanent to go.
Currently, she is staying at the Liaquatabad women’s police station.
The Station House Officer (SHO) Liaquatabad, Uzma Khan, stated:
The Karachi police are trying to trace her father by contacting their counterparts in Nawab Shah.
