Recurring cases of sexual assault on youngsters for job offers
A few days back, a similar incident occurred in Islamabad. A girl named Saima in Islamabad went to a Karachi company in search of a job, on request of her friend. However, she was raped on gunpoint.
According to the victim’s statement, a woman named Hina called her to a Karachi company in Islamabad for her job finalization. However, as soon as Saima reached the company, some accused started harassing her in front of Hina. The main accused, Nasir Abbas, and his other accomplices raped Saima twice. Not only this but they also kept her in custody for two hours at gunpoint.
The recurring cases of sexual assaults have been a cause for concern for Pakistani citizens. Moreover, there is a growing consensus among the masses that rapists should be hung publicly in Pakistan.
Meanwhile, many citizens now strongly demand to impose Islamic punishment for rapists. Let’s hope that our law enforcement agencies will provide justice to the victims.
