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.
