POLICE in Bangladesh are investigating after a girl, 13, was married off to a
moneylender, 75, to pay off her father's debt. 

The chief of police for the Muladi sub-district in southern Bangladesh said the girl
had been forced to marry the moneylender to clear her father's debts, although the
details of the financial transaction had still to emerge.

"Our officers went to the village but did not find (moneylender) Lokman Shikdar and
his teenage wife, Akhinur. We did find out that the father of the bride had some sort
of financial transaction with (the moneylender)," said police chief Amir-uz-zaman.

He added that the moneylender, who already has 11 children by a first wife,
had recently lent a cow to the bride's father.

The English-language newspaper The Daily Star reported that the girl was forced
into marriage due to her father owing the moneylender just 4000 taka

He borrowed the money for rebuilding work after his village was hit by devastating
Cyclone Aila in May this year, the paper said.

Although marriage of girls aged below 18 is a punishable offence in Bangladesh, it is
widely practised in the Muslim majority nation as very often families alter the age
of their daughters on official documents.

*PROOF* ^^^^^
