KARACHI, Dec 17: Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari sent on Monday a bouquet to a six-year-old rape victim from Umerkot district admitted to the Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Hospital Lyari, and asked the Sindh government to provide necessary help to the victim and bring the perpetrators to book.

In a message, he also pledged to protect all weak segments of society from atrocities and violence.

Bilawal House media coordinator Surendar Valasai gave the bouquet to the girl on behalf of Mr Bhutto-Zardari in the hospital. PPP Karachi division information secretary Lateef Mughal and former PPP MPA Gianchand Meghwar were also present.

The small girl was kidnapped in Ghulam Nabi Shah town in Umerkot district early this month and raped by some men.

The PPP chairman instructed the Sindh government to provide every kind of assistance, including the best medical facilities, to the victim and her family and to take stringent action against the culprits.—PPI
