HARIPUR: Two sisters was alleged gang raped by seven men on Wednesday. Five of the accused have been arrested.

Police quoted 20-year-old Mehreen*, wife of Jamal* and resident of Wah Cantonment, as saying that three days back she and her sister hired a pick up van to visit their relatives in the neighbouring Kag village when two men barged into the vehicle.

She alleged that the intruders steered the vehicle to a secluded spot, taking both women inside a house where five others were present.

She said they locked her and her sister in different rooms and raped them one after the other, for over 10 hours.

“I felt like I was losing consciousness when the rapists drove  to a city area and dropped us near a hospital,” she said, between sobs.

Meanwhile, a First Information Report has been filed against the perpetrators and five of them have been arrested.

@Nitish: Horrible- sounds like something that goes on in India- I am sure that in Pakistan these men will be handed justice very shortly since the men of the family will settle for nothing but justice for this type of crime.

Jamshed | 8 years ago | Reply @truth: "please give them punishment according to islamic law" You mean locking the girls in jail for admitting to the "act" and letting the criminals go becasue there are no 4 witnesses? Well, thats the Pakistani mullahs interpretation. The accused men once they admit to the crime, they should be flogged in public and locked in jail with the keys thrown away.
