Police officials said that the victim’s parents have taken the body to their native town in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Mansehra district for burial.
A first information report (FIR) has been lodged and investigation into the incident was underway.
A steep rise in the reporting of such incidents has been observed since the nation grieved the brutal rape and murder of eight-year-old Zainab in Kasur last month.
Last month, a man was booked for allegedly attempting to rape his own niece inside their house within the limits of Sachal police station in the city.
