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.
