Gang rape survivor in Karachi identifies two of six suspects

KARACHI: A gang-rape victim identified two of her six alleged tormentors before a judicial magistrate in Karachi on Thursday.

Six men, including two police officials, were held earlier this week for allegedly raping a woman during a burglary in North Karachi.

On Thursday, the police presented six suspects, Abdur Razzaq, Naeem, Kamran Malik, Liaquat, and constables Sarfaraz and Malik Danish, in the court of the central district’s judicial magistrate for an identification parade.

The victim picked two of the suspects, Abdur Razzaq and Liaquat, and said that they had raped her.

Following the identification parade, the judge remanded the suspects in judicial custody and directed the investigation officer to present a medical examination report of the victim in the court for further proceedings.

The FIR of the incident was registered under sections 376 (punishment of rape), 452 (house-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Khawaja Ajmir Nagri police station.

The complainant said the six men broke into her house and subjected her to gang rape, adding that they also robbed valuables from her house and filmed the sexual assault.

According to the police, the officials, Sarfaraz and Danish, were posted at the office of DIG West and Gulshan-e-Maymar police station respectively.
