Three suspects, accused of raping a teenage girl in Dera Ghazi Khan last month, were arrested for a second time on Saturday, Express News reported.
Last month, a teenage girl was allegedly gang-raped by three men. The suspects were arrested by police, but were later released. The girl committed suicide on Saturday morning.
DPO Ghulam Mubashir confirmed that the three suspects were arrested again today after PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri called out the government over the incident.
Further, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif also took notice of the incident.
Addressing his supporters earlier in the evening, Qadri called on stage the mother and brother of the teenage girl who was allegedly gang-raped and had committed suicide on Saturday morning.
The PAT chief condemned the incident and said it highlighted the plight of the underprivileged in this country. He then asked his supporters, who were in tears, to pray for them and vowed to take revenge for this incident.
Qadri also lashed out at the government and said the rulers should be ashamed of themselves for not being able to provide justice to people such as the woman standing with him on the stage.
“Daughters of the nation are dishonoured in this country,” he added.
