A 21-year-old sleuth allegedly recruited young destitute boys.

LAHORE: A raid by police along with members of the Child Protection Bureau (CPB) late on Thursday recovered four young boys who were being sexually abused at a hotel in Lahore, Express News reported.

Officials of the CPB had been monitoring the activities of a 21 year old sleuth at Data Darbar, whom they suspected was working as a recruiter, taking young destitute boys to a nearby hotel where they were sexually assaulted.

On Thursday, they raided Chandni Hotel, opposite the Lahore Railway station and recovered four boys, aged between 10-15 years who were being sexually assaulted.

The police arrested the hotel’s owner, Mahmood along with a number of his accomplices. The police say that they are investigating the incident.

Locals alleged that the main reason this practice was not clamped down on earlier was because they were complicit in the act.

CPB took the children in its custody.

    It’s more of moral degradation of the society than the bad law and order situation.

    10 to 15 year old school boys kidnapping child for ransom and afterwards killing it. Disgusting.Where is our society going.Who are at fault, parents or teachers or both.The police are over worked and over stretched and incompetent too.No amount of incentives have improved their mind set or the thana culture.What should the ordinary people do to protect themselves,their family and their property.
