Not only have the two been suspended but DIG Jail Naveed Rauf has been made the inquiry officer to further investigate the matter.

Sexual harrassment is a pervasive issue in the country as back on August 13, an anti-terrorist court awarded 70 years imprisonment and 47-year-jail term to two accused involved in abducting and sexually assaulting a girl in Multan.

The accused also kidnapped a 12-year-old schoolgirl and fled the scene.

The culprits sexually assaulted the girl and threw her at an isolated place after committing the offence.
