Rape case ordered against PML-N MNA, six others

CHAKWAL: Chakwal Additional District and Sessions Judge Asghar Khan ordered City Police on Tuesday to register a case against PML-N MNA Ayaz Amir and six others for sexual assault on a 15-year-old married girl, Tabasum Farooq.

According to the petition filed by her, she alleged that the Chakwal Police was reluctant to register a case against the MNA and the six ohers.

Tabasum Farooq, thorough her lawyers, contended that the MNA and the six others sexually assaulted her at his residence.

Haroon Irshad Janjua appeared on behalf of the MNA and said that the incident was stated to have occurred four months ago and that there was no medical report in favour of Tabasum Farooq and also that no one witnessed the incident.

The judge, after hearing the arguments from both sides, ordered Station House Officer (SHO) City Police Station Chakwal to register a case against all the accused nominated in the application.
