Dawn learnt the facts of the case that have come to the light so far also puzzled the JIT as it alleged the victim girl herself and her fake father turned out to be a members of the notorious gang.

The Layyah City police claimed that about half a dozen accused allegedly involved in the case have been taken into custody while the raids were going on for the arrest of the remaining suspects. Police alleged the fake father of the victim girl had registered the case with the Layyah City police against the alleged gang, whose ringleader had been traced. They claimed that the ringleader, with the connivance of women and men, was involved by preparing objectionable videos and selling them.
