Islamabad (Pakistan): In a horrifying incident, a 14-year-old girl was raped by two of her uncles for the past several years in Pakistan.
The 14-year-old girl managed to escape out of her house in Rawalpindi’s Dhok Darazian, and reached out to the authorities on Thursday, local media reported.
“Save me… My uncles have been raping me every day,” the teenager pleaded to the area’s counsellor Shazia Sajid, who reportedly lived a few miles away.
“When I saw the girl, she was panting and shivering, there were bruise marks across her body. I immediately took her to the police station nearest to my house,” Shazia Sajid was quoted as saying by a Pakistani TV channel.
“My uncles have been raping me for years but every time I told my mother about it she beat me up and told me to stay quiet,” the girl informed.
After the 14-year-old girl’s statements were recorded, the police registered an FIR, under Sections of rape and assault, and arrested the suspects, identified as Faizan and Kamran.
Meanwhile, the teenager has been sent to the child protection bureau. “She is safe now. We will take her for a medical examination too,” Ali Abid Naqvi, the district child protection officer informed.
