FAISALABAD: A four-year-old girl was raped by her neighbour in Darbar Wali on Monday. Sindhow Town resident Muhammad Rehman’s daughter Aasia, 4, was raped by neighbour Haroon, while she was alone at home at the time of the incident.

Quoting the initial medical report, the concerned lady doctor confirmed that the victim was raped and had been severely beaten. Aasia is the youngest of Rehman’s six children.
