Two men had reportedly sexually assaulted a young woman with a mental disability in Faisalabad’s Haji Abad neighborhood.
After the incident, police authorities claimed that a first information report (FIR) was registered against the suspects at the Nishatabad Police Station.
The police have started a search for the other suspects a police official said that further action would be taken against the culprits as efforts were being taken to arrest the culprits.
