Pakistani man puts children 'on sale' to pay off fine

By Ians

Islamabad, Sept 9: In a bid to pay a fine imposed by a Pakistani Jirga (tribal court) a man put his children on sale at Rs.1.6 million.

Ghulam Rasool Katohar on Tuesday put his four children, aged between three and eight years, 'on sale' at Pakistan's Jacobabad press club to pay the amount as fine imposed by a Jirga.


Katohar said a family belonging to the Khoso tribe had accused his son of having an extra-marital affair with a woman of that tribe about two years ago.

He said the family took the matter to the Jirga on Sunday who found his son guilty and imposed a fine of Rs.1.6 million to be paid to the rival side to settle the dispute.

He was not in position to afford the burden and had to sell his two daughters and two grand-daughters to raise the money and save his family from violence, Katohar said.
