He previously had one wife whom he dismissed from his house.  We have been to the police but even after several hours they don’t give attention to us, “– said the girl’s parents.

Police officers of Apheni, in the Lagodekhi district, explained that the parents of girl are arguing with them because they want money or goods from the boy’s family. They have a rule that when you bring a woman to your house you have to pay money or goods to girl’s family. – told by the police.

The girl’s parents are blaming the police for inattentiveness.  They said that ethnically Azerbaijani people have this tradition but they want their daughter back instead of any profit.
