A married woman was held hostage in a house and raped for five days by two men in Rawat, near Rawalpindi, police said.

The 30-year-old victim told police that two men, Khurram and Nauman, had stopped her near a bus stop while she was on her way to her father's house and forced her into their car, Station House Officer Basharat Abassi told DawnNews.

The two men drove her to the Nai Abadi area in Rawat where they kept her in a house and raped her continuously, she added. They also shared compromising photos of her on social media.

She told police that Khurram, who lives abroad and had only recently returned to Rawat, had asked for her hand in marriage years ago, but her father had refused.

Police filed a case and arrested both Khurram and Nauman, a motorcycle mechanic, and recovered their mobile phones, Abassi told DawnNews. The two suspects are due to appear before a magistrate court.

Khurram had re-applied for his visa and planned on leaving the country soon, the SHO added.

The victim was taken to District Headquarters Hospital for medical tests and has now returned home.
