A 12-year-old girl in Rawalpindi has been allegedly sexually assaulted and tortured by her madrassa (seminary) administrator with the help of his female colleague.
Rawal Division Superintendent of Police (SP) Ziauddin told Dawn.com that the suspect had obtained pre-arrest bail in the case. However, he was still arrested after two sections — 377-B (sexual abuse of a child) and 506(ii) (criminal intimidation) — were added to the FIR on the basis of a statement made by the victim’s mother.
The complainant further stated that her daughter was taken to Mufti Shahnawaz’s room, where he tried to rape her and when she resisted he tortured her and forced her to consume a “tea-like drink”, which left her unconscious.
Police teams under supervision of SP Rawal Ziaud Din conducted raids in Rawalpindi, Chakri, Hassan Abdal, Mansehra and other areas to arrest the suspects.
On Monday afternoon, Mufti Shahnawaz reached a local Rawalpindi court and was granted interim bail in the case
As soon as the case came to fore, the accused went into hiding while the police have registered a case and conducting raids to arrest the suspects.
The FIR was originally registered under sections 376 (punishment for rape) and 511 (punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with imprisonment for life or for a shorter term) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
