Karachi: Minor girl narrowly escapes rape attempt
KARACHI: A man allegedly tried to rape a minor girl in the Bilal Colony police limits while she was out of her house for private tuitions. Sub–Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Chaudhry Mohammed Akhtar of the New Karachi Division said that the family of the girl came to the Bilal Colony police station, where they reported that Adil, their neighbour, tried to rape their minor seven–year–old daughter. The police raided Adil’s house, but were unable to find him and the suspect’s family said he had not been home since the evening. He added that the Amir, the father of the minor, informed the police that he worked at a private company and his daughter would go to the neighbour’s house for tuitions. When she went to the house for tuition, Adil allegedly tried to rape her, but the girl managed to escape from his clutches.
SDPO Akhtar said that the police had taken the girl to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital (ASH) for a medical examination to confirm whether a rape attempt was made. However, the lady MLO was not present and the hospital staff told the police that she would come on Saturday morning. This caused a delay in the registration of the FIR as it can only be lodged after it is confirmed that a rape attempt was made.
