A 14-year-old girl was abducted from her home and gang raped on Wednesday evening.
According to police officials, Tirasi 10-RK resident Muhammad Rasheed’s daughter was abducted on Wendesday night from her home by accused Sadiq and his two friends.
Local residents said that Sadiq had broken into the house and kidnapped the girl while her family were away visiting relatives.
“He probably took her to his dera, where they raped her,” a neighbour Shams Raza said, adding that the girl was dumped outside her house the next day. “She was unconscious and her clothes were torn. When we recognised her we immediately called the police,” he added.
Rasheed told police that his daughter was severely injured and both her legs had been fractured. “The doctor has issued a medical report and a case has been registered,” police officials said. Rasheed told reporters that his daughter had suffered a severe head injury.
“She hasn’t woken up yet and doctors have told us that her condition is serious. She has been brutally beaten,” he added.
The girl has been admitted to the DHQ Hospital in Khanewal, where doctors have said her condition is serious. “She has suffered severe head injuries and has not yet gained consciousness. She was raped by three different men according to DNA test reports and we have contacted the police,” Dr Asad Tiwana said.
Police officials have registered the case but so they have been unable to recover any of the accused. Police said that they were searching for Sadiq and his accomplices.
