ISLAMABAD: A woman in Islamabad has accused a police inspector of blackmailing and raping her on several occasions with the law enforcement agency resorting to dilly-dallying in arresting the accused despite registration of a case.

Talking to Daily Express, the woman, B*, accused the former Station House Officer (SHO) Mehboob Ahmed and two of his accomplices of blackmailing and raping her.

Police, at first, refused to register the case but did so on the orders of the sessions court.

Meanwhile, Mehboob also approached the court and accused the woman, a resident of Pakistan Town, of framing her in a fake blackmailing video to extort Rs30,000 from him.

Subsequently, police included the officer's version in the case, while no arrest has been made so far in the case. The accused officer could not be reached for a comment.

Interestingly, Mehboob was appointed as SHO, Bhara Kahu just a day before the case surfaced.

In June, police allegedly sold a rape victim to her ‘distant relatives’ after she accused some police officials before a court of raping her.

Mohammad Baig | 2 years ago | Reply Rs.30000 is the real story and tells the reals story and the connections between the two if proceeded with care but not protecting the SHO and narrating a new story for fixing the women who are least heard and counted in the society.
Pakistani | 3 years ago | Reply Reprehensible Rape needs to be dealt with severely And if the Police officers are guilty they should be punished very severely. Our Police is worse than criminals
