She said that the men fled the scene after the child fainted. “She returned home in tears around midnight.”

She said that the men were influential in the village and no one was willing to help her because she was a widow.

    God help those who help themselves, People keep electing feudals as their representatives in Assemblies, and then complain that those people have become too powerful, we have nothing to blame but ourselves.
    PS. PTI supporters, spare me your crap, your party is full of the same feudals, whose families have been in power for last 200 years, its not going to change.
