LOWER DIR:

A judicial magistrate in Timergara city on Sunday sent Lower Dir’s Senior Civil Judge Jamshed Kundi to district jail in a sexual assault case. However, the number of days for which he has been sent to prison has not been ascertained so far.

On the other hand, District Bar Timergara President Shah Faisal Yousafzai has demanded to form a judicial commission to investigate the case. The unfortunate incident took place on November 25 at Judge Kundi’s official residence.

According to the FIR, the judge had asked for a bribe amounting to Rs1.5 million for providing the victim’s sister a job three months ago.

The victim, in her statement, added that she paid the equivalent amount in jewelry but Judge Kundi was unable to secure a job for her sister. She added that the judge contacted her on November 20 and asked to accompany him to Lower Dir to collect the jewels for which they both travelled in Judge Kundi’s official car.

After reaching his official residence, the complainant said, Judge Kundi told her that he would return the jewels only if she agreed to have sex with him. Upon her refusal, the judge sexually assaulted her.
