Dua Zehra Age: What is Dua Zehra’s real age according to medical reports?

Dua Zehra Age: The case of Dua Zehra, the girl who went missing in Karachi in April but later claimed to have married, has become even more contentious after a court ordered that her age be determined.

An ossification test to determine her age has been ordered by the Sindh High Court. Dua Zehra said she was of legal age and could marry anybody she wanted at her court appearance.

The medical method used to determine Dua Zehra’s age revealed that she is between the ages of 16 and 17. At Karachi’s Civil Hospital, a number of medical tests were carried out. Dr Laraib Gul of the hospital, a female medico-legal officer, gave the report.

The findings indicate that Dua Zehra is a minor, most likely between the ages of 16 and 17, who is not old enough to obtain her own computerised national identity card (CNIC).

Dua Zehra had underwent tests to determine her age, according to an Age Certificate given by the Karachi Police Surgeon’s office on Tuesday.

X-rays were taken at the hospital’s Radiology Department as part of the test. According to the certificate, Radiology Chief Dr. Saba Jameel assessed that Dua Zehra’s bone density was not that of a 14-year-old.

The certificate stated, “Bone age is between 16 and 17 years.” The head radiologist also estimated the girl’s age to be roughly 17 years old.

It’s worth noting that Dua Zehra married in Punjab, where the legal marriage age is still 16 years old.

Parents claims

According to Dua Zehra’s parents, their daughter is 14 years old, making her too young to enter into a freewill marriage without their agreement.

The medical report was disputed by Dua’s father, Mehdi Kazmi, who called it a forgery. He wanted new medical examinations. He had previously stated that Dua was 14 years old, using her birth certificate as proof.
