In Chitral town of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, an investigation was launched against the MP based on a complaint lodged by an NGO working for the welfare of women. An NGO named Anjuman Dawat-o-Azeemat accused Maulana Ayubi in an application. It said that an MP from Balochistan has married a girl four times younger than her age. This news spread on social media towards the fire and people got angry about this incident. On this appeal of the NGO, the police immediately started investigating.
