KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Thursday ordered the authorities to shift Dua Zehra to Karachi shelter home.
The Sindh High Court (SHC) remarked that there is no legal impediment to shifting Dua Zehra to Karachi and the case is currently pending in the trial court of Karachi. “Apparently Dua Zehra is unhappy with her husband and does not want to live with him, and she is also afraid of her parents, so it is appropriate for her to stay in a shelter home,” the court remarked.
