A 60-year-old cleric has been arrested in Afghanistan for marrying a 6-year-old girl.

India Today reports that the cleric, Mohammad Karim, had explained the reason for marrying the young girl, claiming it as a religious offering by the girl’s parents. However, when the girl’s parents were contacted, they claimed that she was kidnapped from the western part of Herat on the border of Iran and they did not know anything about the wedding.
