LAHORE: Lahore High Court attends to a press report stating an alleged assault of a girl by a Pastor.
The Lahore High Court on Wednesday paid heed to a report that stated that, a pastor repetitively assaulted a Christian girl on the excuse of providing her job. This iniquitous incident is said to have occurred in the Emanabad area of Gujranwala.
The LHC Complaint Cell directed the Gujranwala district and sessions judge to look into the matter and submit a detailed report within a week regarding steps taken by the local police along with his own comments.
LHC took notice on a press write-up: A 20 year old orphan girl approached a pastor named Shamshad who promised to manage a job for her. The family of the girl had financial constraints as her father had passed away some time ago. Seeing her misery the pastor, promised the girl a job later allegedly molested her time and again. He also captured her naked pictures and videos on mobile with an intention to blackmail her and to make her keep mute. When the girl was hacked off with this drawn out “molestation”, she made the matter known to her mother who consequently, submitted an application against Pastor Shamshad with Emanabad police. A case was registered and the police booked Pastor Shamshad afterwards for investigations.
The LHC Complaint Cell took notice of the news on secretarial side while directing the D&SJ concerned to probe into the matter asking for a report to be submitted in a week’s time.
