NANKANA SAHIB - The Warburton police registered theft and dacoity cases against three kids of 4, 6 and 8 years old. The family reached the Press Club to raise their voice against the police.

A few days ago, Shahida, a resident of Mahmoodpura was kidnapped by accused Akbar and others and was allegedly gang raped in Sheikhupura. Akber got the victim’s thumb impression and signature on a Nikah Nama or wedding documents to save his skin from legal action and also tortured her, the family members alleged.

After registering a case, the Saddar police recovered her from Bhatti Chowk Sheikhupura. Later, they said, the police connived with the accused, took bribe and registered fake theft and dacoity cases against the victim’s minor brothers.

In reaction, the family appeared before Nankana DPO but they were asked to go to the Warburton police station again. Thus, the family reached the press club and raised their voice against the “injustice”.

They warned that if they were not provided justice, they would commit suicide in front of the Punjab chief minister’s Secretariat. Dozens of villagers with the family protested against the incident.
