ISLAMABAD:


A rape victim has appealed for strict action by the apex court against her alleged rapists whom she also accused of blackmail and intimidation.


The applicant alleges she was raped by certain policemen and the owner of a private security agency for almost eight months. She claims that the alleged culprits did not just sexually assault her but also recorded videos and photographs of her to use as blackmail and were continuously threatening to upload them onto the internet if she reports the incident.


In July 2015, the young woman, a native of Khanpur Bagga Sher village, Muzaffargarh said she went to a private security company for work. The owner offered her a job and after a week asked her to accompany him to a meeting. Her statement is that he took her to an isolated location and in an empty house raped and imprisoned her there.


She also alleged that many innocent girls in Muzaffargarh have fallen victim to the criminal actions of the same gang of nominated accused.
