Lahore: 15-year-old girl raped
LAHORE: A 15-year-old girl was gang raped by two men in the Civil Lines Police jurisdiction on Saturday night. The police have arrested three people including a girl and a hotel manager in this connection.
Salma Rizwan, the victim, stated in her complaint with the police that her friend Kanwal came to her house to take permission from her (Salma’s) parents to allow her to attend the engagement ceremony of her (Kanwal’s) sister in Malik Park next to Data Darbar.
Salma said her parents gave her permission and she left with Kanwal for the engagement. She said that as they got to the main road, two men Naveed and Shahnawaz stopped next to them in a car. She said Kanwal got into the car, as she knew the men and convinced her (Salma) to get in too.
She said that the two of them (Kanwal and her) went with the men, who stopped the car after about a five-minute drive and Kanwal got off. She said the men then took her to Royal Hotel, raped her, drove her to Sabzazar and threw her out of the car.
She said that people of the area saw what had happened and informed Rescue 1122 officials who took her to General Hospital.
Civil Lines Police registered a case against Naveed, Kanwal, Shahnawaz and the hotel manager under Section 371-B. The police also arrested Kanwal, Naveed and the manager.
Sub-Inspector Shafee Lashari said that the police raided several locations right after receiving the news and arrested three people, who confessed to having been involved in the crime. He said Shahnawaz was on the run, but would be arrested soon.
