BADIN: A minor girl who was abducted from Badin city a week ago was gang raped and killed near Tando Ghulam Ali town of Badin district, police said Monday.

Tando Ghulam Ali police on a tip-off raided a bus coming from Chambar, arrested two suspects and recovered the body of the eight-year-old girl early Monday.

Station House Officer (SHO) Tando Ghulam Ali Dhani Buksh Marri told media representatives that during preliminary questioning both suspects confessed that they had kidnapped the minor girl and had raped her for seven days. They also confessed strangling her to death later.

Another police official told Dawn that the victim might have died due to profuse bleeding that resulted from repeated rape.

The girl's body was shifted to Rural Health Centre Tando Ghulam Ali.

Examine: ‘10 cases of child sexual abuse occured every day in 2015’

One of the suspects who was apprehended while dressed as a woman confessed that he and his accomplice had abducted five minor girls and killed them after subjecting them to rape, the official said.

The suspects used to bury their victims in a graveyard near Matli, the official said.

SHO Marri said both accused would be handed over to Chambar police for further investigation. He said their latest victim was abducted from Badin's Golrachi Bypass Road area.

The victim's father later told reporters that his daughter went missing a week before and has demanded "exemplary punishment" for her killers.

Zahida Detho, chief of the Sindh Rural Partners Organization (SRPO), has in a statement sent to Dawn demanded a thorough probe into the incident while expressing serious concerns over the increase in incidents of sexual assault in southern parts of Sindh.

DSP Matli Ali Raza Leghari said Badin and Tando Allahyar police would jointly investigate the incident.

A report launched by the Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child earlier this week stated that 10 cases of child sexual abuse took place every day in the country in the year 2015. Meanwhile, nine people were executed for rape in Pakistan between January and May 2015.

It is unbearable to think that she had to go through the ordeal for days just to be killed at the end.It is such a desperate stage.I mean whats happening to humanity ?.Its not just a matter of punishing the culprit ,But we have to live with the thought of the extend what human can do another human being.I wish if the heaven is true and she will have a happy after life, the only hope that can relieve the pain off me.

Hamaad Apr 25, 2016 06:17pm

Severe punishment must be meted out to these criminals. Media must publicize when these punishments are carried out. So that it puts some fear in the hearts of those that contemplate to do such crimes.

SECONDOPINION02 Apr 25, 2016 09:07pm

I am shocked to read this. All the political parties especially religious parties are silent on such a grave incidence of child abuse.
