LAHORE - Police have registered an FIR against the public relations officer of Rescue 1122 on charges of raping his woman colleague.

The FIR was lodged in compliance with the Supreme Court orders. The complainant said in her application that the officer asked her to visit his private residence in Defence for an official task. She said that she boarded his official vehicle and she was transported to Defence from Emergency Services Academy, Thokar Niaz Beg. “As soon as I entered the flat, the said officer locked the room from inside and raped me forcibly. I put up resistance but to no avail,” she said.

Also, she said, the accused filmed her in an objectionable condition and threatened to make the video viral on the social media if speaks up. She said the accused blackmailed her for a longtime and raped her several times, but she kept a mum due to fear of her objectionable video going public. She said that then she moved an application to the additional chief secretary (ACS) of Punjab who ordered an inquiry and suspended the accused 1122 officer.

During his suspension, she said, the officer warned her against pursuing the case. She said she requested the chief justice of Pakistan to direct the police concerned to recover the objectionable video from the accused officer and take action against him as per law. Defence A Police, on the directions of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, registered an FIR (No.562/18) against him under Sections 376 of the PPC. Further investigation into the case is under way.
