The PPP leader Shela Raza assured the demonstrators, who had taken to the streets for having moved Dua Zahra from Karachi to Lahore, that the government would appeal against the verdict of the Sindh High Court.
She spoke these words in talks with protesters who protested against Dua’s shifting from Karachi to Punjab.
The demonstrators began their protest from the Karachi Press Club and carried it to the Sindh Chief Minister’s House.
A large number of women and children took part in the civil society demonstration calling for Dua Zehra to be handed over to her parents.
During talks with the protestors, Shehla Raza ensured her full cooperation.
She said, “The provincial government is now going to fight Dua Zehra’s case and immediately file an appeal,”.
Following the reassurance of the leader of the PPP, the demonstrators dispersed peacefully.
Just one day before, the Sindh High Court (SHC) allowed teenager Karachi to decide her fate whether she wanted to live with her parents or leave with her husband.
The court had held that there was no evidence that Dua was kidnapped.
