Two arrested for assaulting, blackmailing BZU student



Local police arrested two culprits involved in molesting and blackmailing a university student here on Monday.

Police officials said that some nine months back, Atif Hameed and his associate Shan Asim made a job offer to a B-Pharmacy female student of the Bahauddin Zakariya University (BZU) Multan and took her to a hotel in Bara Market where they sexually assaulted her.

The accused had, the officials said, made a video through which they used to blackmail the girl, who hails from Muzaffargarh.
