KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari denounced the reported child abuse scandal in Kasur district of Punjab, the country’s biggest ever child abuse scandal which discovered 400 video recordings of more than 280 children being forced to commit indecent acts where most of the victims were under 14. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that this type of scandal is a slap on the provincial government of Punjab, which keeps harping on other smaller issues but kept the nation in darkness over this worst human rights tragedy. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also condemned the police torture of parents of the victim children, who demonstrated against the failure of local police to prosecute the criminals who orchestrated the scandal. Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party urged for an impartial enquiry into this scandal and for the culprits to be taken to task.
