Islamabad: Adding up one more case of conversion and forcible marriage in Pakistan, a14-year-old Hindu girl has become the latest victim after she was kidnapped and married off to a Muslim man after faking her actual age on the documents, media reports said.

The minor girl was identified as Parsha Kumari.

The girl was abducted from the Mori district of Khairpur in Sindh in Pakistan.

The family had immediately filed a mission person report with the local police, reports WION.

The police reportedly did not take any action so far.

Later, it was revealed that the minor was forced to convert and was later married off to Abdul Saboor, without consent, reports WION.

Abdul Saboor faked Kumari's age on the affidavit, claiming that she is 18-years-old, making her an adult, reports the news channel.

However, in the documents submitted by her parents, her date of birth mentioned is 15th September 2005, which makes Kumar 14 years old. She was a student of class IX, the report said.

Voice of Pakistan Minority tweeted: "A minor 14 yr old #Hindu girl, Parsha Kumari from Mori, Sindh has been abducted, converted to Islam and married off to her abductor on 10th Sept. #Pakistan minorities have lost one more daughter. #StopConvertingMinorities."

Journalist Naia Insyat also tweeted on the incident as she said: "Hindu girl Parsha Kumari, 14, from Mori district of Khairpur, Sindh was abducted, forcibly converted and married to her abductor Abdul Saboor. Kumari's family filed FIR to recover the minor who is a class 9 student, but to no avail. Her age is misstated in the affidavit."
