A woman was abducted by two neighbours and raped, her family said on Thursday.
Rehman Ali, a resident of Millat Town, told The Express Tribune that his niece Maryam* was walking to a market when she was abducted by Arshad and Amjad.
“They took her to a deserted house where they raped her,” he said. He said they had later abandoned her near her house later. “We took her to a hospital. She is in a critical condition,” he said.
The Millat Town SHO said police had registered an FIR on Ali’s complaint and a team had been formed to apprehend the suspects.
