RY Khan: Woman charges doctor, medical rep of sexual assault
RAHIM YAR KHAN: As reported by the Express Tribune on Wednesday, a woman accused a doctor and a medical rep of sexually assaulting her on Monday night.
Saira (name has been changed), a Jeddah Town resident, registered a police case against Dr Anees-ur-Rehman Koreja, an ENT specialist at the Sheikh Zayed Hospital in Rahim Yar Khan, at the A-Division Police Station.
The case was registered under Section 376 of the Pakistan Penal Code (that includes rape and abduction charges).
The police have sent Saira’s medical samples to a laboratory in Lahore for confirmation of the charges. District Police Officer Babar Sarfaraz said that they have registered the case but will only arrest the doctor after Saira’s medical report confirmed that she had been assaulted.
Talking to The Express Tribune, Saira alleged that Rehman and his medical rep Shahid had assaulted her on Monday night.
She said that she had gone to Rehman’s clinic with a throat ailment. She said that after examining her, Rehman, also a Jeddah Colony resident, offered her a ride back home.
She said that she was short on cash so she accepted the offer. On their way back, she said, Rehman turned the car towards Gulshan-e-Iqbal.
“When I protested, his friend grabbed me and threatened me to stay quiet,” she said, adding, that the two men took her to a house, the police later found out that it was owned by Shahid, where both of them raped her. She said that later they took her out, locked the house and threw her by the roadside.
