VEHARI: A 20-year-old girl, who was allegedly abducted and gang-raped on Tuesday night, died due to excessive bleeding at a quack’s clinic in Chak-188/EB.

According to victim’s mother, the four influential figures of the area barged into her house and took away her daughter at gunpoint to some unknown place where she was raped. When she fell unconscious they left her at a nearby quack’s clinic where she died because of excessive bleeding.

Quack Muqadas Bibi and the whole staff managed to escape when police reached the clinic.

Saddar police have registered a case against five accused, including quack Muqadas Bibi, under sections 376, 338-A, and 322 of the PPC on the report of victim’s brother.

The body was handed over to the family after an autopsy at the DHQ Hospital on Wednesday.

Saddar SHO Chaudhry Rasheed told Dawn the girl had relations with the accused and she was admitted to a clinic for abortion where she died due to excessive bleeding.

An employee of the DHQ Hospital, who assisted the autopsy, said the initial report confirmed the rape.

He said the samples had also been sent to a laboratory in Lahore for the chemical examination.

Dr Naheed Malik, who conducted the autopsy, did not attend the phone.

However, no arrest was made till the filing of this report.
