LAHORE - The gang rape victim could not appear before the magistrate to record her statement due to unstable mental health yesterday.

The suspects allegedly abducted the 15-year-old girl from Multan Road and took her to a guest house at Mall Road where they subjected her to gang rape.

They left the girl unconscious in a room of the hotel and informed her family through a text message on cellular phone. The girl is a student of Class VIII and under treatment at Services Hospital.

Meanwhile, a judicial magistrate of Cantonment Courts extended for two days physical remand of eight men involved in gang rape of a teenaged student.

Race Course police produced the prime suspect-Adnan Sanaullah and his accomplices Abdul Majid, Muhammad Umar, Ameer Ahmad, Haris, Bilawal, Imran Shahid and Qamar Zaman before the court under strict security. Sanaullah had been an office-bearer of PML-N Youth Wing.

Assisted by a deputy prosecutor, the investigating officer of the case asked the court to extend physical remand of the suspects for the purpose of interrogation.
