Man escapes after allowing relative to rape wife.

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.

“My husband came to our house with the man and told me to sleep with Wali. When I refused to do so both men overpowered me,” she told the police, adding that with the help of her husband, Wali raped her after which both men left.

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.”

    Where in the Muslim world are women given “equal rights”? The phenomenon of women regarded as low-status is at the heart of islamic culture.

    i think we need to stop with both muslim bashing and male bashing. these are both forms of generalizations which do not suit an educated audience. what we need is condemnation and swift action against these animals.
