Clerk and drug inspector booked for rape in Rahim Yar Khan
Police have filed charges against a drug inspector and a health department clerk, accusing them of sexually assaulting a woman. The accused individuals were also involved in extortion. According to the initial report filed by the City Liaqatpur police on September 3, the complainant, ‘B,’ who resided in Madina Colony Khanpur, alleged that her daughter ‘R’ operated a maternity home clinic and lived at Adda Gulshan-i-Fareed.
The complainant mentioned that she frequently visited her daughter’s clinic to oversee its operations. However, the Tehsil Liaqatpur drug inspector, ‘I,’ along with the clerk ‘G,’ who was assigned to THQ Hospital Liaqatpur, had repeatedly sealed her daughter’s clinic. To reopen the clinic, her daughter allegedly paid a bribe to the clerk.
Subsequently, both suspects continuously sealed the clinic and extorted money from her daughter through blackmail to permit its reopening. They also coerced her daughter into engaging in illicit relations. Eventually, the daughter filed a complaint against the suspects with the health authorities.
The complainant further informed the police that on August 27, 2023, when she was on her way to Liaqatpur, the suspects intercepted her, claiming that she had filed an application against them, and they wished to mediate.
They forcibly took her to a house in Model Town, Liaqatpur, and allegedly sexually assaulted her at gunpoint. During the assault, they also recorded a video.
Meanwhile, medical stores in Liaqatpur city staged a strike in support of the drug inspector and health department clerk. They rejected the mediation offered by Acting DSP Saifullah Korai and demanded the withdrawal of the FIR.
