Student gang raped by Pindi cops ‘retracts’ statement


RAWALPINDI: The four Rawalpindi police personnel who raped a student earlier this month were given a clean chit by their victim before a local court on Tuesday.

According to the details, the 22-year-old student who was raped while she was out for sehri with her friend, retracted her statement against Muhammad Naseer, Rashid Minhas, Muhammad Azeem and Amir stating that her initial statement presented on May 24 should be considered null and void as she wants to record a new statement.

She said that the suspects nominated in the case were not involved in the crime and she didn’t know their names before the filing of FIR, further claiming to nominate the suspects on the provocation of NGOs and focal persons.

It is pertinent to mention here that the gang rape has been confirmed by a  medical report whereas, earlier reports revealed that the families of the criminals had been threatening the victim’s parents to drop their allegations.
