PAKISTANI PUTS CHILDREN ON SALE TO PAY OFF FINE


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -  In a bid to pay a fine imposed by a Pakistani Jirga (tribal court) a man put his children on sale.
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, Dawn news reported.
Katohar said a family belonging to the Khoso tribe had accused his son of having an extramarital 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 Rs1.6 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 children to  raise  the money  and 
save his family from violence.
