Pakistan police arrest couple, facilitators over gay marriage

Pakistan police have arrested four persons in southwestern Balochistan province for their alleged involvement in a gay marriage.

The arrests were made on Tuesday in Jhal Magsi district of the impoverished province, a police official said on Wednesday.

The official said two men entered into a gay marriage on Monday while their two friends helped them to perform the Nikah.

The accused told police that they arranged a fake marriage as part of fun but a formal FIR has been registered against them as gay marriage is illegal and a violation of the law in the country, the official said.

It was the first reported case of gay marriage from conservative Balochistan which is rocked by violence.
