Teen married off to Omani, mother approaches police

In a shocking piece of news reported from Hyderabad, a minor girl was married to a 65-year-old Sheikh from Oman.

After initial inquiry cops found out that there was a dispute between Sikander and his estranged wife over sharing of money due to which she made a decision to lodge a police complaint.

Gandhi also wrote on Tweeter, "I would request @SushmaSwaraj to intervene and bring the girl back to India from Oman".

Grace Mugabe alleged assault victim 'living in fear'
Mugabe is accused of assaulting a 20-year-old model, Gabriella Engels, with an extension cord at a Sandton hotel over the weekend.

Gandhi took to Twitter to respond to media reports on the incident, which she termed as "deeply disturbing". Gandhi has also asked the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to reach out to the girl's family.

Saiyeeda Shaikh, a resident of Nawab Kunta area, lodged the police complaint after her daughter called her from Oman on Wednesday and confided that she wants to return home as she was not liking it there. "We are waiting for the police to take action", the girl's father Syed Afsar said. The Falaknuma police have registered a case against Ghousia Bi, Sikender, an unnamed qazi and the Omani national under IPC sections 420 (cheating), 506 (intimidation), read with 34 (criminal act done together).

But keeping the parents in the dark, the relatives convinced the young girl to accompany them to a hotel in Barkhas of the Old City to meet the aged groom. Even the Omani national's name is only mentioned as Ahmed. A hotel owner is also said to be part of the racket as he provided accommodation in his house for visiting sheikhs. The proposal was initiated by her sister-in-law and her husband. The nexus of contractual marriages is rampant in the city and Sheikhs come here to find brides by paying anything between Rs 10,000 to lakhs of rupees.
