Couple beaten in court over free-will marriage
Humaira, a resident of Pattoki, contracted marriage with Imran Ali last month and the family of the girl had a kidnap case registered with local police against the groom.
The couple filed a petition before the high court requesting that the case be quashed for being fabricated.
On Tuesday, Humaira was supposed to appear in court to record her statement in favour of Ali. However, her family members stopped the couple outside the high court and started beating them.
Some lawyers and passersby rescued the couple and tried to calm down the situation.
However, the infuriated family of Humaira managed to take her with them dragging her with hair.
