DADU: Four suspects were booked by the Johi police on Monday for allegedly subjecting an 11-year-old girl to gang-rape about three weeks ago. She died in the local civil hospital on Sunday.
The girl’s father told the media that he had approached the police soon after the incident but they refused to register a complaint because the culprits happened to be influential people.
He said they [the suspects] kidnapped his daughter, subjected her to gang-rape and then dropped her near his house in Manwani Solangi village of Johi taluka. She was found lying there unconscious and was rushed to the Dadu Civil Hospital, where she remained under treatment for two days but could not survive, he said.
Following refusal of the police to register a complaint, the aggrieved father filed an application in court, which sought the post-mortem and other medical examination reports of the victim.
He said that the reports were prepared two days back and were likely to be produced in court by the SHO concerned on July 2, the date fixed by court for the hearing of his application.
