Teenage Pakistani Christian girl is facing pressure from the police to give a made-up statement against the perpetrators of sexual assault. Details emerged that Christian minor namely Samira was sexually assaulted; however, the police in this case are exerting pressure on the rape victim in order to ward off legal action against the alleged culprits.
In line with a human rights activist Shahzad Khalid, the 16-year-old victim and her family are being pressurized by the police to settle the dispute outside the court. Nonetheless, the First Information Report (FIR) number FIR 33/16 was registered at the Kuri Road, Khana Pull Police Station in Islamabad.
Shahzad Khalid reported that the Investigation Officer in this case is trying to mar the truth so that the perpetrators may go unpunished. “The Investigation Officer Benyamin is trying to force the girl to give stamen according to his will,” he stated.
He maintains that the police are not following the standard legal procedure due to be pursued in rape cases. The Christian victim was not presented before the duty magistrate in Islamabad. He has urged the believers to pray for the victim and her family so that they may have courage to stand against the pressure.
