Dadu SSP Aijaz Ahmed Shaikh arrived at the hospital to enquire about the victim’s health. He revealed that by age, an 18-year-old abuser, had raped the 3-year-old girl in Dadu, the family is in shock.
He said the SHO brought the girl to the gynecological ward of the hospital. Meanwhile, the police continued interrogating the rape suspect at B-Section police station. More so, he added that if there were other accomplices in the sordid crime they too would be arrested. He vowed that justice would be provided to the victim’s family.
As of now, the suspect is in police custody and is being questioned. A case has been lodged against the suspect and further interrogation is underway.

This horrific case comes months after the ghastly incident that shocked the entire nation. A Karachi woman and her four-year-old daughter were allegedly gang-raped by men in the Kashmore area of Sindh. The woman had traveled to the city from Karachi after the main suspect duped her on a job offer.
Yet another day, another rape case, and another cry for justice. Last year, five-year-old Marwah was kidnapped, tortured, raped, and killed and the list goes on. It is utterly disappointing to see Pakistani officials not doing enough to stem violence against kids and women.
