Faisalabad cops in search of 10-yr-old rapist
FAISALABAD: Police officials have registered a case against a 10-year-old boy for trying to rape a four-year-old boy in Samanabad.
Eyewitnesses said that several raids were being conducted to arrest ten-year-old Yasir, after Samanabad resident Ejaz Hussain submitted an application with factory area police that the boy had tried to sexually assault his four-year-old nephew Osama.
“It is completely unfounded because Osama doesn’t even live in the area,” said Yasir’s neighbour Fahad.
According to locals, on October 27th Ejaz’s 28-year-old son Khurram beat up Yasir after they had a fight in the street over a game of cricket.
“The boy was beaten to a pulp. Khurram hit him with a cricket bat until the family took him to the hospital,” said Fahad.
Yasir’s uncle Shakeel Ahmed filed a case with the Secretary area police. “I had a medical certificate and several people were willing to testify in favour of Yasir but the police ignored us. They refused to file the case and said that if we didn’t leave immediately they would arrest us,” Ahmed said.
