The family submitted her birth certificate with the complaint. However, an affidavit was presented from the girl’s side in which she claimed that her old name was Parsha Kumari and she has accepted Islam. She further claimed that she is in love with Abdul Saboor and wanted to marry him.
According to Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat, Parsha’s age was wrongly mentioned to be more than actual in the affidavit. In the affidavit, Parsha’s age has been mentioned as 18, while according to her birth certificate she is 14 as her date of birth is mentioned as 15th September 2005 in the document submitted by her parents.
