CHAKWAL: A 14-year-old girl with disabilities was allegedly sexually assaulted by six people on different occasions, police said on Monday.

Lawa police have arrested three of the suspects while one has secured a pre-arrest bail. The remaining two are yet to be arrested.

In the First Information Report (FIR), the mother of the girl said on the night of May 26 an unknown man barged into their house and soon fled after her daughters woke up.

“One of my daughters, who is 14 years old and is deaf and dumb, got frightened and traumatised. After being consoled, she revealed by sign language the identity of the man who had entered the house.”

She told her mother that on May 20 another man took her to a funeral place on a motorbike and sexually assaulted her.

The mother said her daughter also told her that she was raped by six men, including the man who entered their house, on different times.

Police got conducted a medical examination of the girl and the report is yet to be received.

“The initial report suggests that the victim has been sexually assaulted,” investigating officer Bushra Batool told Dawn.
