BAHAWALPUR: South Punjab Additional Inspector General of Police Dr Ehsan Sadiq says that the scope of the investigation in to the Layyah ‘pornography’ case will be widened and police will soon find out the facts of the case.

In a press release issued from the AIG’s office on Sunday, it was claimed that all the suspects would soon be arrested.

Dr Sadiq said the police officials tasked with the assignment were working honestly on its investigation. He said the real culprits would be traced and arrested and all those involved in the case would be exposed with the use of the latest technology. He said the facts would be made public and after the completion of investigation shortly.

It may be recalled presently a joint investigation team (JIT) of South Punjab police is engaged to find out the persons involved in the case and the investigation is being personally overseen by the additional IGP.

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.

However, the JIT has not completed its investigation yet.
