Neighbor arrested for abducting, raping minor girl in Karachi’s Steel Town

KARACHI: In another gruesome case of child sexual abuse, law enforcers in the country’s largest metropolis Karachi have apprehended a man for allegedly sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in Steel Town.

As per a copy of the FIR available with Other News, the grief-stricken parents of a minor girl lodged a complaint in the Somar Goth police station on Saturday as the child was missing after she went to the roof. The girl was reportedly sleeping on the roof amid hot weather.

The culprit barged into the roof and took her to an abandoned residence in the neighborhood. The FIR further stated that local cops started a search operation in the vicinity and the child was found hours later from an empty house in the neighborhood. She was crying while being subjected to sexual violence.

The survivor told her father the ordeal she faced and cops lodged a search operation and nabbed five local men for questioning and an FIR was lodged against the suspect who is identified as Kamran. The survivor girl recognized him during the probe.

Meanwhile, the clinical examination has confirmed sexual abuse on the minor girl.

An investigation officer while speaking with a local news outlet said that Kamran has confessed to abduct and sexually assault the minor girl.

A case has been lodged under Section 376 – punishment for sexual assault – of the Pakistan Penal Code while the authorities have collected the suspect’s DNA for a match.

According to Pakistan’s law, rape is a punishable offense. The definition and punishment for the crime are detailed under Sections 375 and 376 of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Let it be known that a man is said to commit sexual assault when he has intercourse with a woman against her will, without her consent, or by putting her in fear of death or of hurt and if the accused will be charged, he will be sentenced to imprisonment for no less than 10 years or more than 25 years.

Reports in local media quoting human rights organizations cited that rape cases have increased up to 38 percent across Sindh in the first half of 2021.

The Sindh police had registered around 200 cases of rape and 45 of gang rape however experts believe these numbers as factually wrong as the actual figures are much higher than the reported ones.
