In the video, Nasreen’s disturbing condition can be seen. The lawyer told her name and that four men had abducted and given her torture on which PM Imran khan has taken notice. The police later shifted her to a hospital for medical treatment. According to the family, Nasreen is still in trauma.
Rape and physical abuse cases have become more prevalent in our society in recent times. Every now and then, cases of rape and torture surface on social media. Just earlier this month, a group of drunk men stripped and filmed a teenage girl in Rawalpindi. Not only this but child abuse has also been a prevailing problem in Pakistan. We truly hope Advocate Nasreen gets her justice!
