ISLAMABAD: A five-year-old girl was subjected to rape in the capital’s rural area, police said on Friday.

The minor is dumb and deaf and was a daughter of house servant of a sitting legislator.

The police said a constable found her standing along roadside with blood staining her clothes.

The constable inquired about the injuries but did not get any reply from her. After assuming that she might have been injured in a road accident he took her to Shahzad Town police station.

But later she took her to hospital when her condition started deteriorating. The doctors after examining the girl declared that she was physically assaulted.

The police started a search for her family and came to know that they were also looking for her child, who disappeared from Chatha Bakhtawar, of Bani Gala police station.

Extremely heart wrenching, a little girl who cant speak or say a thing treated in such a way. A human being is capable of this let alone in a muslim country where we should know our religion even more, basic humanity. What a shame that the person who did that is so ignorant so ignorant worse than an animal. Shame. I hope and wish that person get the punishment he deserves and the family is treated with respect. How will we humans face our Almighty and prophet on the Day when our deeds will be brought forward. To that little precious girl may Almighty bless you the best in both worlds.
