RAWALPINDI:  The Taxila police have arrested two absconders, who gang rapped a six-year-old schoolgirl in Jamilabad, Taxila and dumped her body in a well on September 25.

Superintendent of Police Potohar Division Muhammad Haroon Joya, during a press conference held his office on Monday, said that the accused were identified as Muhammad Amjad son of Muhammad Ashraf and his co-accused Muhammad Qasim and Muhammad Yasin of Jamilabad.

"The 6-year-old girl Sania Bibi daughter of Taj Amin, a poor labourer, dressed in school uniform having school bag on her shoulders was going back to his home after closure of school when Amjad, who was already waiting for her in the way, caught her and later brought her into a house where Qasim was also waiting," SP said, adding that both rapped the girl and then strangulated her to death.

To hide their sin, SP said they threw the dead body in a well located in the courtyard of the house where this satanic act was done and filled it with soil and garbage.–Israr Ahmed
