GILGIT: The Gilgit-Baltistan government has refused Awami Workers Party (AWP) leader Baba Jan to solemnise his Nikah in Ghizer district, as reported by a local media outlet.
Baba Jan, who has been serving a life sentence in the Ghizer jail on charges of inciting people to violence in 2014, recently got engaged with a woman in Geech village.
Baba Jan had already submitted an application for bail on parole for the Nikkah that was due to be held on April 15. He was not granted the bail. His family maintains that he has a right to get married on parole and that they had completed all the arrangements for the said Nikkah ceremony.
According to the family, the parole application was sent by the district administration to the home department but nothing was heard from them. They also said that they were told by the district administration that they could decide nothing about the parole in high profile cases.
