KARACHI: A teenage girl identified on Friday four male suspects, who had abducted her and subjected her to rape.
Police claimed to have arrested and booked four men for allegedly abducting a 17-year-old college student and subjecting her to sexual assault in the Steel Town area earlier this month.
On Friday, the investigating officer produced the girl before the judicial magistrate (Malir). In her statement, the girl deposed that she along with a friend went to visit Hill Park two or three months ago, where her friend called four men, including two men known to her, all of whom started teasing her.
She said after some days one of the suspects picked her up from her college, where she is studying in first year. He took the girl to his house on a motorcycle on Feb 9, where he promised to marry her the next morning, the girl said.
She alleged that the man subjected her to sexual assault the same night.
However, the next morning he denied having promised to marry her and threatened to release her objectionable videos if she disclosed the incident to anyone, the victim deposed.
She added that the suspect claimed to be the son of a retired deputy superintendent of police and threatened to harm her family.
