Five complaints of sexual assault filed, two attempts thwarted
Five women and a man were allegedly raped, including a dancer and an employee of the Department of Agriculture, in separate incidents, while two girls foiled attempted rapes by making noise.
Police said that an FIR was lodged by the agriculture department staffer, a resident of Chak 295RB, at the Jhang Bazaar police station, stating that she knew the suspect, Abdullah, and had told him that she was getting a promotion in the department.
He told her that his friend, an official in the department, would help fast track her promotion.
According to the complainant, Abdullah took her to Lakar Mandi Chowk on Saturday to meet his contact. He led her to a residence where two unidentified suspects were present, under the pretense of introducing the victim to his acquaintance. They reportedly locked the room, threatened to murder the victim and raped her. The two unidentified accomplices stood guard.
Meanwhile, a dancer from Madanpura filed a case in the D Type Colony police station, accusing Muhammad Nauman, a resident of 209RB, of sexually assaulting her. Nauman reportedly visited her home on Saturday and when he saw she was home alone, forced her into a room at gunpoint and raped her. When the victim made noise, her mother-in-law and sister-in-law reached the spot, but the suspect fled.
