FAISALABAD: 

Two sisters were allegedly raped in Faisalabad on Thursday night.

Kamalia Saddar police said *Shakila and *Madiha, residents of Chak 761-GB, were abducted from their house and raped.

The girls’ father told police that *Muhammad Wasim and *Akram Manzoor had broken into their house on Thursday and kidnapped the girls at gunpoint.

“They were raped by Wasim, Manzoor and their accomplices at a dera.”

“We filed a complaint with the police but they failed to recover them.”

He said the girls returned home on Friday after their tormentors left the dera. “The police have not arrested anyone,” he said.

The Kamalia Saddar station house officer said police were waiting for a medico-legal examination report of the girls who were being treated at the tehsil headquarters hospital in Kamalia.

“A police team has been constituted to arrest the suspects,” he said.

Separately, a 14-year-old girl was reported raped in Ghulam Muhammadabad on Thursday.

Police said *Sadia, a resident of Ghulam Muhammadabad, was on her way to a market when she was abducted allegedly by *Ali and raped.

*Shahzad, an uncle of the girl, said Ali took her to some house where he raped her. “He fled when some neighbours gathered outside the house after they heard the girl scream,” he said.

The Ghulam Muhammadabad station house officer said police had registered a case on a complaint filed by the girl’s father.

He said police were waiting for a medico-legal examination report. “A police team has been formed to arrest the suspects.”

    I do sincerely pray that these beasts are brought to justice and stoned according to Shariah.
    As soon as we will start punishing people, these crime rates would be alleviated.
    Rape, what a shameless and inhumane sin…Recommend
