MULTAN-A local court remanded on Tuesday all six accused involved in BZ University student rape case into police custody for four more days after the expiry of ongoing physical remand.

The investigation officer had requested the court to grant more remand as he had not completed interrogation as yet.

Similarly, the inquiry committee constituted by the BZU administration has also sought access to the complainant and the defendants for recording their statements. University sources disclosed that the Registrar of BZU had written a letter to police department for giving access to the accused arrested in connection with the case besides the complainant girl.

The three-member committee included Director Students Affairs Prof. Ashraf Khan, Registrar Dr. Umar Chaudhry and Prof Seema Mahmood.

The girl M, a student of Saraiki Department of BZU, had filed on January 25 an application with the SSP Operations Multan Saif Ullah Khattak, accusing her class fellow namely Ali, his four friends and her teacher Ajmal Mahaar of sexually abusing her.

An FIR (No 2/18) was registered by the women police station under sections 376, 109, 506 and 25-D of the Telegraph Act on the complaisant of Ms. M. Police conducted successful raids and arrested all accused including the accused University teacher Ajmal Mahar, Ali Qureshi, Usman, Rashid and Tanzeel.

The BZU sources disclosed that the accused teacher Ajmal Mahaar had been involved in immoral activities in the past. "He was caught with a girl in his room in bachelors' hostel in the university in 2010. The then university administration came to his rescue and shelved inquiry against him," sources added. Similarly, police also recovered over 70 immoral video clips from the mobile phone of the main accused Ali Qureshi.

Although, the BZU spokesman claims that the female students had not filed any application, the complainant girl, insists that she had filed application with the VC office one year ago when she was subjected to sexual assaults by the teacher and his accomplices. "But no one listened to me. My application was not entertained," she added.

Sources revealed that the medical examination of the girl had also been conducted by a medical board which showed that she was not subjected to any sexual assault during the last six months.
