LAHORE:


Lahore High Court’s Complaint Cell on Tuesday took notice of media reports of three women being molested in three districts.


One of the reports said Sadiq, a resident of Gogera, lured a woman on her way to see her sister and molested her. Another report said a grade five student in Pakpattan’s Arazi Amer Singh village was kidnapped and taken to nearby fields. The men tried to molest her but her cries attracted some villagers who caught one of them while the other fled. The girl’s parents said the investigation officer had been pressuring them to drop the charges. A third report said two sisters, residents of Kamalia, were on their way home when two men detained and molested them. Police are investigating the matter.

LHC has directed district and sessions judges of Okara, Pakpattan and Toba Tek Singh to submit reports on these cases within a week.
