Cross FIR against assailed girl’s family cancelled


DI KHAN: Regional Police Officer Syed Fida Hussain Shah on Wednesday said that the cross FIR filed against the family of 16-year-old girl victim, who was assaulted and paraded naked in Dera Ismail Khan on Sunday, was cancelled.

Talking to media at his office, he said that a police team from the city visited village Gara Matta and found out after investigations that the FIR filed against the victim’s family was fake, and was therefore cancelled.

He further said that three police teams were constituted to investigate the incident and eight suspects had been arrested so far, while the hunt for the main culprit Sajjawal was still underway.

He said that a special investigation team, headed by the police superintendent investigation, was working on the incident to ensure that there were no mistakes which could benefit the accused during the hearing of the case.
