A man and a woman have been convicted of forcing their 19-year-old daughter to marry her first cousin, leaving her “almost suicidal”.
The couple had lured their daughter to Bangladesh in 2016, telling her they were going for a six-week holiday to visit family and celebrate Eid.
But hours after she arrived the girl’s father revealed he had found her a husband – telling her he had “planned this for years” and paid for university for the “really suitable” match.
