The wedding between a 5-year-old girl and a 22-year-old man was disrupted by police in Pakistan, although they arrived a tad late because the nuptials had already been completed.

The wedding ceremony was taking place in the village of Raman Shar in Dakhan Town, Pakistan when police swooped in and made arrests. The groom Habibullah Shar, the registrar Molvi Kifayatullah Bhutto, 40, and the father of the groom Gul Meer were all arrested. The bride and her mother were also taken into custody.

All those accused and the bride were to be prosecuted under the Early Child Marriages Restraint Act of 2013. The action was later said to be targeting the groom, his parents and parents of the girl under sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Pakistan Penal Code.
