Police arrested three men on Monday for their alleged involvement in sexually assaulting a teenage girl for months in Landhi.
The arrests were made after the father of the 13-year-old girl approached the Landhi police and told them that his daughter had been taking tuition classes at the house of one of the suspects, Hammad Baig, from his sister.
A few days ago, he said, his daughter complained of stomach pain and he took her to hospital, where doctors carried out a medical check-up and told the family that the girl was pregnant. The victim’s father alleged that Ismail, a brother of his daughter’s teacher, Hammad and their cousin, Waqas, repeatedly raped his daughter over a course of around five months. Police have registered an FIR under sections 376/34 against the suspects and conducting an investigation.
