A worker of JUI-F revealed the details on social media platform X, formerly Twitter, where he also shared a video of the girl who can be heard explaining the incident. 

The 13-year-old girl, while talking in Pashto language in the video, says she came back home from school on that day and was congratulated by the family members. “I started crying when I was told that a 70-year-old man will marry her,” the victim said.
