taxila - A court has sent an accused of raping a minor girl to Adiala Jail on 14-day judicial remand.

Separately, an additional sessions judge (ASJ) yesterday extended pre-arrest bail of Dr Tallat till December 11, 2015. The lady doctor is accused of conducting abortion of the minor rape victim.

According to details, Muhammad Ashfaq, the rape accused was brought in the court of Area Magistrate Imran Shabbir Awan by a team of police. During the proceedings, the investigators told court that they had taken the accused to a hospital for medical examination and were waiting for issuance of medical report. On this, the area magistrate sent the accused Muhammad Ashfaq to Adiala Jail on 14 days of judicial remand.

Police officials booked Muhammad Ashfaq, a local PML-N leader, and a lady doctor on charges of raping his 13-year-old niece in June 2015 at gunpoint in his house at Barhama Bahter area and conducting abortion of the minor girl against receiving heavy bribe respectively.

Meanwhile, Additional and Sessions Judge Zafar Ullah Khan extended the pre-arrest bail of Dr Tallat.

The accused doctor appeared before the judge and pleaded that her lawyer was busy in some other case and could not attend the hearing. She requested the court to grant her extension which was accepted by the judge.

It may be noted that two brothers of Muhammad Ashfaq - Amir and Asif - are also languishing in Adiala Jail in the case of torturing one Ghulam Farid, a relative of the rape victim. They tortured Farid and forced him to confess that instead of Ashfaq he had raped the girl.
