NAROWAL: A widow was allegedly gang-raped by four people at Mitranwali area of Daska tehsil, Sialkot.

The woman, a mother of five, filed a complaint with police, stating that she was walking to her home from Shafiq Town on Aug 23 around 6pm when local ‘A’ offered her a lift and took her to a house.

She said one ‘M’ and two unknown men were present there and she could recognise them if she saw them again.

She said the suspects consumed alcohol and allegedly gang-raped her by playing songs on the sound system. She said when her condition became critical, they left her near Cheema canal and escaped.

The Daska city police have registered a case against five people on the complaint of the widow.

Police spokesman Khurram Shehzad said raids were being conducted on the orders of DPO Syed Zeeshan Raza to arrest the suspects.
