September 08, 2007


KARACHI, Sept 7: Police seem to lack the will to pursue the gang-rape case that took place at a government hospital in Landhi on Thursday as no efforts have been made to arrest the suspects.

A Civil Hospital nurse was gang-raped allegedly by four ward boys of the Landhi Medical Complex, where she had gone for the dressing of her skin ailment. The 23-year-old victim was resident of 100 Quarters in Landhi.

The inquiry officer of the Landhi police station told Dawn that “there is no progress in the case, nor any of the suspects has been arrested”.

Following the incident, all the four suspects, identified as Aftab, Arshad, Junaid and Rashid, escaped while Asad is also missing.
