The brother Abdul Sattar told reporters that his sister Shareefan Bibi was married to Ali Sher, a resident of Kachi Paki Ludon. He said three months ago, his sister was returning after visiting her father when the four abducted her.

However, she managed escape in wretched condition believed to be bearing a baby. The family approached the Saddr police who refused earlier.

However, they booked the rapists on the court’s orders. Cop Akhter Chema was blamed for backing the beasts.

When contacted, Saddr SHO Malik Rashid said the tragedy did not take place in his jurisdiction so the case had been discharged and Abdul Sattar was advised for registering the case in police station concerned.

The aggrieved family appealed to Punjab CM, Punjab IG, RPO and DPO for the justice.

The number of such cases has surged in the country, setting alarms bells rings.
