Girl seeks PHC CJ action against her ‘kidnappers’

PESHAWAR – An allegedly kidnapped young girl, daughter of Allah Jan, resident of Kohat, has appealed to Chief Justice Peshawar High Court to take action against the accused Irfan and Javed, who had allegedly kidnapped and sexually abused her.

“I was abducted by Irfan and Javed and they sexually harassed me,” she blamed while talking to media persons here at press club on Thursday. She along with her three brothers and parents came to press club to inform the media about the incident happened with her. The 18-year-old girl said she was married and had come to her parents home in Shakar Dara, Kohat. She said someday she along with her younger brother Amir was going to her maternal grandmother’s house situated in the same village, the two accused brothers Irfan and Javed, sons of Saeedullah, stopped them in the way and picked up her in front of her brother. She said she had been taken to Punjab and then backed to the village, where they kept her for 15 days. She alleged that the concerned police officials were not registering FIR against the accused.

Father of the victim said when his son Amir informed him about the incident he rushed to police station to lodge FIR in order to get his daughter released, but neither the police officials registered FIR nor they tried to apprehend the abductors.

He alleged that after passage of three days SHO Samiullah lodged the fake FIR in which the SHO involved her will in escaping with the accused persons. “Then I moved the court and it helped recovered her.” She said the accused were threatening them to press them for reconciliation with them through the SHO, as she added the SHO was also terrorising them of dire consequences if they did not settle the matter with them. “We have to leave our village due to constant threats by the notorious abductors of the village.”

It is worth mentioning here that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Law Minister Arshad Abdullah also met the victim and assured her of inquiry in this regard and arrest the abductors. They, therefore, demanded of the provincial police chief to take stern action against the SHO for backing the involved persons and arrest them forthwith so that they could be provided with justice.
