Trainee was allegedly lured to meet 2 MLOs for help getting exam marks

A trainee nurse at Jinnah hospital who was allegedly raped a week ago, named three people including a driver and class fellow in her statement to the police on Tuesday.

TPO (Investigations) Jamshed Amir Jaffery, TPO Saddar Javed Akhter and SP Investigations Arshad Qamar recorded her statement in the presence of her lawyer Javed Chattari.

Last week, M was discovered face down and bleeding in JPMC’s Mess 96, a residential colony.

She either jumped from the first floor balcony or was pushed. She was operated on for a subdural haemorrhage by Prof Sattar Hashim and was unconscious for a few days after.

M has alleged that her class fellow Sajjad Fatima took her to the hostel, under the pretext of meeting two other MLOs – Dr Taiyab and Dr Farhat. She said that she went in a car driven by Rashid.

Meanwhile, APP reports that the police are waiting for DNA tests to add to the growing body of evidence that M was raped and possibly gang raped.

M has been visited by government and political officials. She has refused to take any financial compensation or help and has said that she only wants justice.

On Tuesday, MPA Humera Alwani said that M told her that more than three people raped her. She said that M was thrown from the window of the flat.

Doctors said she could be discharged in the next three to four days. Her family has demanded security for her.

Earlier on, judicial magistrate South has extended the physical remand of the prime suspect Dr Abdul Jabbar Memon. Memon’s lawyer said that his client was too ill to be presented in court.

Dr Memon was brought outside the court on a stretcher where Magistrate Zulfiqar Ali met him.

The court extended his remand for another six days.

A committee of the Additional Secretary for Health Dr Abdul Majid and Dr Padhiar are also investigating the matter.
