Faisalabad police have arrested the main accused Salman in the alleged gang rape of two sisters after the government took notice of Voicepk.net’s report.
Salman has been at large since the registration of the first information report. Following Voicepk.net’s report on the gang rape, the PTI government ordered the police to probe the matter on merit and arrest all the accused nominated in the FIR by the victims. Police told voicepk.net that Salman is on physical remand and his DNA samples have been sent to Punjab Forensic Science Agency for identification. The father of the two sisters thanked VoicePk for raising the issue and campaigning for justice for his daughters.
The police assured the family that they will soon arrest the remaining accused, who abetted in the crime. Salman’s phone has also been sent for forensic examination as the victims accused him of filming them while they were raped.
The incident took place in September but the family of the girls registered the FIR in October. The father of the girls said they delayed lodging of the FIR because the girls were in a deep state of shock and didn’t want to involve the police. The accused had threatened the girls that they would kill their brother if they involve the police.
