RAWALPINDI - There is no let-up in child abuse scandals in Rawalpindi division, as two more teenagers were sodomized by six men in Kallar Syedan and Chitti Hattian areas in separate incidents, reliable sources disclosed to The Nation yesterday.
According to details, three men namely Mudassir, Shahban and Shahid took a teenage boy Adnan to nearby fields in Kishan Dhoot area (Kallar Syedan) and sodomized him. Similarly, Amar Amin, 17, was sexually molested by three men including Ibrahim and Tariq in a house located at Chitti Hattian area. The accused filmed the satanic act through their mobile phones and blackmailed the victim, sources added.
They said that the station house officers of police stations concerned, who were earlier using delaying tactics to hush up the issues, got registered cases only after strict action on part of Regional Police Officer (RPO) Wisal Fakhar Sultan Raja. The police brought Amar to Benazir Bhutto Hospital for medico-legal report. A constable of PS Waris Khan has also been suspended on account of hiding Chitti Hattian child abuse scandal from police high-ups and for humiliating the victim family.
According to sources, a villager Sabir Hussain son of Jahandad appeared before police station Kallar Syedan officials and tabled an application in which he mentioned that his son Adnan Hussain left his house for meeting his uncle who lived nearby on August 29, 2015. He said the boy did not return home and they started searching him but all in vain. “When we found Adnan at 11:00pm, he was weeping bitterly. Upon inquiring, Adnan told me that three men namely Mudasir, Shahban and Shahid picked him up while he was coming back to home and took him to nearby fields and molested him,” he stated. The father requested police to register a case against the molesters. Taking action, police lodged the first information report (FIR) under section 377 of Pakistan Penal Court and started investigation.
An official of police station Kallar Syedan, when contacted, confirmed the development. He said that police have been trying to arrest the accused.
In the second incident, a 17-year-old boy Amar Amin was sodomized by a gang of three men in a house in Chitti Hattian area. The accused filmed the satanic act through their mobile phones. Later, the accused started blackmailing the teenager by hurling threats that they would show the video to public if he would refuse to have sex with them, sources asserted.
Sources said that a citizen namely Shan Ali lodged a complaint with police station Waris Khan that Tariq, Ibrahim and their unknown accomplice picked up his nephew namely Amar Amin from Committee Chowk on August 14 and took him to a house in Chitti Hattian. Later, they molested Amar and recorded the objectionable video in their mobile phones, he said. He added that some days after, the boy told the tragic ordeal to his mother who informed his uncle about the saga. He said that the accused have been blackmailing the boy by showing video to public and forcing him to have sex with them again. He sought legal action against the accused.
Interestingly, sources said, a constable Usman, who is said to be a blue-eyed of the SHO, started misguiding the victim family and hid the application from SHO apparently after taking bribe from the accused. Later, RPO Wisal Fakhar Sultan Raja, while taking notice on a news item, ordered Acting SP Rawal Division Sardar Babar Mumtaz to look into the matter personally and provide the victim family with justice.
Sardar Babar Mumtaz called on the victim family; listened to their complaint and ordered SHO PS Waris Khan to lodge a case and arrest the accused.
The acting SP also suspended Usman on account of playing foul game with the victims and hiding the case from seniors.
“I am personally looking into the matter and have suspended Usman. Two of the accused, namely Arsalan and Ibrahim have been arrested,” Sardar Babar Mumtaz told The Nation, when contacted. He added that FIR was registered under section 377 of PPC.
