Munawwar Gill case: It was rape-bil-raza not rape-bil-jabr, says Sanaullah

LAHORE: There is a difference between rape-bil-jabr and rape-bil-raza, and therefore, no solid proof of rape against PML-N MPA Munawwar Gill, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Tuesday.

Since both Gill and the woman consented to act and the woman, after receiving a huge sum of money, withdrew the charges, there are no grounds for rape, the law minister told a private TV channel. Naseerabad police had registered a case against Gill on the complaint of 35-year-old Tahira Parveen who alleged that he raped her at gunpoint. Tahira, a resident of Green Town, had told police that Gill had called her to a local hotel under the pretext of helping her settle a property dispute and raped her.
