Assault: Girl who spurned affair raped by influential men
SUKKUR: Seventeen-year-old R’s family was held at gunpoint while she was kidnapped from her house in Sher Mohammad Mahar village and gang raped.
The Khenjoo police said that, on Monday night, a group of armed men broke into D’s house, overpowered the family and fled with his daughter, R. The men allegedly gang raped the girl, left her outside her house later that night, unconscious.
D registered a case against seven people, including Yasin Pitafi, Khan Mohammad Pitafi, Allah Diwayo Pitafi, Din Mohammad Pitafi, Safdar Pitafi, but arrests have yet to be made. He told the police that Yasin Pitafi tried to have an affair with his daughter. When she refused, the offended Yasin attacked her. D claims that Yasin and his men have influence in the area. The distraught father threatened to set himself and his daughter on fire outside the SSP office if he is not given justice.
Khenjoo SHO Abdul Shakoor Lakho told The Express Tribune that the girl was sent to Daharki hospital where she was examined and samples were sent to a laboratory in Rohri. Though the hospital confirmed that she had been raped, they could not say how many men were involved until the test results arrive.
