MITHI: A teenage girl committed suicide by hanging herself with a rope from a tree near her house in Ful-Ji-Wandh village on Friday after she was subjected to gang-rape by two men of her community.

Mashooq Ali Halo, brother of the 18-year-old victim, registered an FIR at Vijuto police station, complaining that two accused Altaf Hussain and Allah Bachayo abducted his sister after drugging their family and then subjected her to sexual assault.

“They dumped her outside their house in semiconscious condition after having gang-raped her but the moment she came to she ended her life,” he stated in the FIR.

He said that Tharparkar SSP Hassan Sardar Niazi had taken notice of the incident had ordered the area’s SHO Malik Mushtaq to register the FIR against the accused as per the family’s but he spoiled the case by avoiding to mention the crime of abduction and gang-rape in the

FIR allegedly after receiving hefty amount in bribe from the accused.

He demanded registration of a fresh FIR against the accused after proper investigation into the heinous crime.

Meanwhile, members of civil society, rights and political activists demanded IGP Sindh take notice of the incident and order formation of a JIT to probe the crime.
