Police have registered a case against richling and his accomplices for sexually assaulting a Christian teenage girl. The alleged rapist and his accomplices had purportedly abducted 14-year-old Christian girl Maria Bibi, on gun point. Maria Bibi, resident of Gaggo Mandi, a town in Vehari District is yet to be recovered from the custody of the richling.
Minorities’ rights campaigner Khalid Shahzad reported that police have registered an FIR of the case. Section 365/B of the Pakistan Penal Code was invoked against the main culprit Amjad Ali son of Niaz Mughal an influential person of the area.
Amjad and his accomplices had raided that house of the Christian minor at around 3:00 am and abducted her at gunpoint. Maria’s grandfather Shahab Masih and mother Bushra Bibi are pleading for the girls’ recovery. “Let my voice be heard in front of the Chief Minister of Punjab,” said Shahab Masih.
Khalid Shahzad, further stated that he and his team met with the concerned police officials. He revealed that he and his team had met with the Muslim leaders of the village and discussed the situation with them. He said that the local Muslim leaders had expressed deep sympathies and concerns for the victim and her family. He stated that the Muslim leaders had ensured safe return of Maria Bibi, as the villagers stand in unity with the victimized family.
Previously, Bushra Bibi and her brother Boota Masih have urged the Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif, RPO Multan and DPO Vehari to take immediate steps in this matter. “If our daughter is not rescued from the clutches of the landlord’s son we will prefer death over life,” victimized Christian family said.
Maria’s mother said that we have already pleaded the authorities but they all seem to be powerless, as Amjad’s father Niaz Mughal is an influential man in the area. Boota Masih said that although an application has been submitted at local police station, yet no FIR of the incident has been registered. “No action has been taken in order to recover our daughter,” he said.
