Rickshaw Driver Accused of Child Rape Attempt in Kasur
A school rickshaw driver is accused of attempting to rape a five-year-old child near the A-Division Police Station in Kasur. The suspect, from the same area as the child, allegedly took the boy to a secluded location after picking him up from a private school. The child’s father reported the incident to the police after the boy told his mother about the assault. The suspect was initially arrested but later released, as both parties reached a compromise in a non-compoundable case under sections 377 and 511 of the PPC.
Kasur has seen previous cases of child sexual assault where suspects were released due to influential interventions or mutual agreements. Some suggest that the police should be the ones to file complaints in such cases.
