 CH4 NEWS REPORT: Thursday 20 June 2013.

GulnazGulnaz prompted an international outcry in 2010 when she found herself jailed for adultery after being raped.

But in the three years since then, her life has taken an even more shocking turn.

After three years of living first in jail and then in a women’s shelter, she finally bowed to pressure from her family and her society by marrying the man who raped her.

“I didn’t have any other option.” she told us.

“My family didn’t want me and I didn’t have anyone else.

“In the end I had to do it. He dishonoured me, but at least this way my daughter will have a father.”
