14 Oct 2021

Punjab Police have arrested a key suspect for his involvement in the gang-rape of an 18-year-old girl on the M-4 Motorway in Gojra, Aaj News reported on Thursday.

The police said that the suspects lured the teenager from Toba Tek Singh on the pretext of offering her a job at a boutique. They raped her in a car on the motorway and fled after throwing her at the Faisalabad Interchange.

The victim's paternal aunt told the police that her niece received a message on a mobile phone for a job interview in Gojra. She added that when they reached the designated spot, the suspects took the girl in a car and raped her on the motorway.

Meanwhile, Punjab CM Usman Buzdar and Punjab IG Rao Sikander have taken notice of the incident and sought report from RPO Faisalabad. They directed the police to arrest the suspects at the earliest and provide justice to the victim.

Pair sentenced to death over motorway gang rape

On September 9, 2020, a woman was gang-raped by two accused during a robbery bid in Gujjarpura along the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway. Later, the police arrested the suspects and registered a case against them.

An ATC sentenced both of them to death after finding them guilty of the charges.
