    @hamza Baloch grow up and open your eyes. Even we could have said same thing about our paper,we don’t. Realisation is step towards acknowledging, finding solutions to eliminate the problem. Closing your eyes and calling others fake won’t solve the problems in your country.

    @ hamza Baloch : You think someone needs to make up a story like this? Isnt it way too common in our Country? Unfortunatley one of the basic reasons why we are standing in such a disgusting position today is that we do not accept anything is wrong with us. This is high time we focus on improving ourselves rather than criticizing others

    It’s just a correction….The story is of one woman but the headline and the last line are showing that it’s more than one womanRecommend

    that’s the difference between PTI KPK and Sharif Pubjab, there in KPK rape culprits were arrested within 24 hours, here in Punjab CM has to take notice for police to get active in dealing with the case.

    untill Nawaz sharif and Shabaz Sharif are in power police will not help the poor victims of this hideous crime, all these minister and the police are wolfs in sheeps clothing, they just try to show the public that they are concerned in realty they are not Pakistan Supreme court should give instant death penalty to those accused by compairing the DNA like all the rest of world do.

    What is wrong with people in Punjab? Religious extremism, violence against women, rape, sectarianism all almost mostly originate and happen in Punjab! (ET publish)

    (Not to mention you have given us these rulers)

    Can’t even imagine what suffering the poor girl went through and what her father is going through now. I hope the perpetrators are shot like rabid dogs.

    How was the post Mortem done if the body is still hanging?
    Why is the identity unknown if the father of the victim had complained to police?

    How do they know she was raped if the body is still hanging? What if this was a suicide?
