Man accused of sexually abusing stepdaughter – 19 May 2022
Complainant alleges suspect escaped when his shameful act became known
A woman lodged a complaint with the police in which she alleged that her husband had sexually abused her 11-year-old daughter from a previous marriage.
According to police, the complainant, Nusrat Parveen, stated in her case that her husband, Sajjad Ahmed, had sexually abused his stepdaughter.
She alleged that Sajjad would often secretly mix their food with some sleeping pills that made them fall asleep.
Nusrat Parveen said that when she woke up at 11pm on May 15 to drink some water she saw her husband had been sexually assaulting his stepdaughter.
The complainant said that she screamed at the top of her voice which alerted the neighbours who gathered in her house to catch Sajjad, but before they could do so the suspect escaped.
Nusrat Parveen said her first marriage was with Muhammad Munir with whom she had two children, a son and a daughter.
She told the police that she took divorce from Munir Ahmed due to domestic disputes and got married to Sajjad in 2018.
Mansoorabad police registered a case under Section 376 of the PPC and started raids to arrest the accused.
In August last year, a man had been booked for sexually assaulting his teenage step-daughter for three years in the provincial capital.
Police said that the man had contracted a marriage a few years back with a widow who had had a daughter from her first husband.
The suspect had been sexually assaulting the minor girl for three years and threatened her with dire consequences if the victim girl spoke to anyone about the matter.
