Karachi, Sept 5 : The Sindh provincial government has reportedly decided to establish separate courts for women, Provincial Law Minister Muhammad Ayaz Soomro said here last evening.

The law minister told the Sindh Assembly that female judges would be appointed in the Sindh High Court (SHC) and female police deputy superintendents will be recruited.

All trial cases involving women will be transferred to this system, the Daily Times quoted Soomro as saying.

He said that the Larkana District Bar Association would provide free legal aid to deserving women and widows, adding that the People's Lawyers Forum would defend women's cases in the SHC.
