New Delhi: In a shocking incident, a Pakistani police officer forcibly sold a Hindu girl whom he had rescued from her abductors. And three days later, she was converted to Islam and married off to a stranger, India Today reported.

The policeman, who is deployed in Sindh province, reportedly sold the girl for Rs 50,000.

The victim has been identified as Anila Bagri who hails from Mirpur Mathelo in Sindh province's Ghotki district. She was forcibly married to Zafar Masoori.

The incident came to light when she narrated her ordeal at a police station.

She alleged that Sajjad Qazi, a cop, held her back and did not allow her to go home.

“When her family came to know about her rescue from the abductors, they approached Mirpur police but Qazi refused to let go the girl,” the report said.

Qazi handed Anila to one of his friends, Masoori in return for money, it added.

After the local media highlighted her case and the ensuing public pressure, the administration was forced to conduct an inquiry.

The accused police officer has been suspended pending an enquiry.

"Forced conversion of Hindu girls in Pakistan is not new. Such incidents are not about Rinkals, Anjalis, Shobhas or Anilas. It's not about names. The point is how to find a solution to this problem."

"There seems to be a conspiracy behind it. They want to disturb the Hindu community so that they move out from here. But, we will stay here. We appeal to the government to protect our children and our family," India Today quoted activist Ravi Dawani of All Pakistan Hindu Panchayat as saying.
