PESHAWAR: A 45-year-old woman was allegedly raped after her husband offered his relative to sleep with his wife in order to settle a loan.
The woman lodged an FIR with the Bana Marhi police station on Saturday, stating that her husband Farid Gul had taken a loan from a family member, which he was not able to return on time. Upon increased pressure from their relative Raj Wali, her husband told Wali that he could sleep with his wife in order to settle the loan.

Police said the woman had registered an FIR under sections 376 and 109 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC). “We have registered an FIR under the PPC and Hudood Ordinance,” he said.
SP Asif Iqbal told The Express Tribune that said several raids had been made but the police have failed to make any arrests. “I am hopeful that the accused will be arrested soon and they will face trial in court.”
