UCH SHAREEF: Unidentified men raped a four-year-old girl in the village of Haider Pur in Uch Shareef in Southern Punjab.

The minor girl was kidnapped while she was playing in front of her house. The rapists later threw her in front of a Rural Health Centre and fled. The police earlier refused to lodge a case and allegedly demanded money from the girl’s father, but later registered an FIR against unidentified persons.

The girl’s father has requested Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to take notice of the incident and order investigation into this case.

The four year old is still in critical condition, and medical reports have confirmed that she was raped.

There have been reports of rape of minors in the recent past. Last week, The Express Tribune reported the tragic tale of two-and-a-half-year-old Samawia, who was abducted, raped and killed in Gujranwala.  The police announced a reward of Rs100,000 for anyone who helps in apprehending the accused.

Ameer Hamza | 11 years ago | Reply Yes, Pakistani police is the real problem. In Karachi we have this opinion that whenever Punjabi led Pakistani police is removed from the city (and Mohajir and Sindhi are added) these issues of rape, extortion, torture would subside.
IqbalGhazi | 11 years ago | Reply The police who demanded money of the father should be taught a severe lesson. The police in 60% of criminal cases are somehow always inplicated - Pakistan really needs to reform its police and bring in people with disipline, integrity and understand the rule of law applies to everyone , especially them.
