Sukkur: Influential man rapes flood victim
SUKKUR: As reported by The News on Monday, a female flood victim was reportedly raped by an influential person in Bhitt Shah. The woman, identified as Hani, who hailed from Thul, lodged a complaint with the Bhitt Shah police that she was staying in a relief camp in Bhitt Shah after her village was submerged by floodwaters. She said due to lack of food supply in the camp for three days she started to work to feed herself and her children. She said she was raped by an influential person, Noor Khan Jakhrani, when she was plucking cotton. On her complaint, the police arrested the accused, but refused to register a case against him because his brother was said to be working for the Police Department. The woman said the police had not sent her for a medical check-up. She accused the police of pressurising her and her husband to withdraw her complaint.
