TURBAT: Once again cruelty has shown its face in Quetta’s Killi Ismail area where a 13-year-old girl was found dead in mysterious circumstances in her house. A report in The Express Tribune says that the brother of the victim found his sister dead inside their home when he returned from work while the hospital authorities are claiming that the victim was sexually abused before being allegedly murdered.
It is not the first time we are reading such painful news, since the beginning of 2018 there has been an upsurge in the reporting of sexual abuse cases across Pakistan. The brutal rape and murder of little Zainab in Kasur earlier this year, in particular, shocked the entire country. I would like to request the authorities concerned to make maximum efforts to protect every individual of the country so they should live without fear.
