SUKKUR, Sept 3: Police recovered a woman after a raid in Salehpat area near here on Monday. She was kidnapped by her brothers four months ago and sold into marriage with another man as a punishment for marrying a man of her own free will.

She said that she had three children from her husband and she wanted to go to him. She said she feared she would be killed by her brothers and demanded police protection.
