PESHAWAR: An 11-year-old boy was gang-raped by two men in Peshawar’s Kohati Gate area Friday night.
An official of Yakatoot police station told The Express Tribune his father Saleem lodged an FIR, accusing Waqas and Nauman of taking his son to a children’s park a few days prior where he said they raped him.
Then on Friday night the men are said to have taken the boy to a house where they not only beat him up but also raped him again. According to the FIR, the two accused released him when he cried for help.
