MULTAN, Dec 21: Rajanpur police arrested on Sunday four more members of a jirga which had decided the fate of a girl under the Vani custom four years ago. Earlier, on Saturday police had arrested three people in connection of the case.
Shamim Mai, 15, of Basti Daha in Kot Mitthan (Rajanpur), submitted an application to District Police Officer Dr Rizwan that Abdul Wahab, 52, had killed his wife some four years ago after declaring that she had illicit relations with her (Shamim’s) brother Manglu.
The 11-member jirga comprising Shamim’s father and brother, Wahab and other elders of the two families had solemnised her Nikah with Wahab to settle the matter. Shamim was only 11 at that time.
Police said they were after the remaining accused.
