Police sources said some villagers found the girl at home in a precarious condition on Monday after which they informed her elder sister who lives with her husband that her younger sister was being sexually assaulted by her father.

The victim’s sister told police about it who in turn called the police helpline 15. Their mother had died years ago, while a brother worked outside the village and two other siblings were much younger to her.

An initial medical report disclosed the girl had been constantly abused by her father.

There have been innumerable cases of violence against women regularly. The incidents have certainly created panic and fear among women whether the streets are safe for them.

 Many are considered keeping firearms or tasers against any perpetrators. Such incidents should serve as a reckoning that Pakistan needs to make roads, workplaces and our society safe for women.
