My aunt told him about me. Abu Bakr called me and my aunt outside Kotwali police station at 7:00 pm on April 7. When my aunt and I reached there, the suspect came in his car with his accomplices and drove me in the car. They then took me to Azhar Hayat's house on Jhang Road where another suspect Kashif was already present.”
She added that after inquiring the suspect that where he had brought her, he pulled out a pistol and placed it on my head and asked to keep silent or he will shoot her. The police have registered a case against the suspects under section 376(Punishment for rape) Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
