PM to introduce ‘stringent’ anti-rape ordinance next week

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has appreciated Assistant Superintendent (ASI) Buriro’s courageous steps to arrest the rapist in Kashmore.

Taking to Twitter, the prime minister wrote that the nation is proud of ASI Buriro. Next week we are bringing a stringent, holistic anti-rape Ordinance closing all loopholes.

The following came after the police raided in Kashmore-Kandhkot yesterday evening and arrested men and later shot dead on charges of kidnapping and gang-raping a woman and her four-year-old daughter in Kashmore. 

Earlier in the day, the victim was offered a job on 25th October. She travelled there with the men and her four-year-old daughter. The men then detained the pair in Kashmore and gang-raped the woman.

They then released her but kept her daughter, telling her to bring the woman who was with her during their meeting at the hospital in exchange for the child.

They threatened to murder her daughter if the woman did not comply. She then approached the police in Kashmore, who conducted a raid at Malak’s residence. They saw three men, two of whom they identified on the spot as Muhammad Rafique Malak and Khairullah Bugti. They did not know the third man.
