Islamabad [Pakistan], March 24 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has launched an "immediate" probe in the case of abduction and forced conversion of two Hindu girls.
The investigation was ordered after a sit-in protest was organised by the Hindu community leaders in the wake of the abduction of the two girls.
Two Hindu girls were abducted on the eve of Holi and "forcibly converted to Islam", the brother of the victims has alleged.
According to The Express Tribune, Hindu community leaders from Daharki taluka of Ghotki district in Sindh claimed that the two underage girls, belonging to the scheduled caste community, were kidnapped by people from the Kohbar and Malik tribes on March 21.
The brother of the victims was quoted as saying, "The two had been abducted and forcibly converted to Islam."
According to the newspaper, Hindu community leader Mukhi Shiv Menghwar said, "It was not free will and the girls were in fact kidnapped and forcibly converted."
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in a tweet on Sunday that she has sought a report from the Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan, Ajay Bisaria on the issue. (ANI)
