ISLAMABAD: The capital police have arrested four men allegedly involved in raping a woman in Fatima Jinnah Park last week.

“One of them, a gardener of the Capital Development Authority (CDA), had allegedly raped the woman while three others facilitated him,” Margalla police SHO Ulfat Arif told Dawn.

After their confessional statements, they were sent to Adiala jail where their identification parade will be held, the SHO said.

Replying to a question he said that after receiving the complaint the police had collected the data of all the staff working at the park which helped in their arrests.

One is a gardener and the rest are security guards, he said.

Last week a woman was walking in the park along with her male friend when some men came and introduced themselves as guards of the park. They deprived them of money and directed them to use different gates for leaving the park.

In her complaint to the police the woman said after sending her friend out of the park, one of the men raped her.

She said she was in a shock and could not lodge a complaint with the police for four days.

The CDA spokesperson Malik Saleem told Dawn on Tuesday that the authority had a mechanism to deal with such issues.

Replying to question, he said the authority would definitely carry out a departmental inquiry.
