RAWALPINDI: A cleric was arrested by the police on Saturday on charges of sexually molesting a teenage in the Dhamial area.
According to Superintendent Police Mazhar Iqbal, the arrest was made on the basis of a medical examination of the 12-year-old boy.
A 12-year-old boy madrassah student was molested by Maulvi Liaqat Hussain at a mosque located in Dhamial Camp where the victim used to receive religious education.
A preliminary investigation and medical examination of the victim prove that the suspect had sexually abused the child.
However, the police have decided to conduct a DNA test. A case was registered with the police on the complaint of the victim’s father.
SP Iqbal said, “All measures will be taken to investigate the case on merit, including conducting a DNA test and other legal formalities.”
The SP has been directed to probe whether the cleric had also molested any other child and if any such report comes to the surface, separate FIR may be registered for each crime.
