Rawalpindi court has found a man and his wife guilty of raping and filming minors to blackmail them. The accused couple has been identified as Qasim Jahangir and Kiran Mahmood.
According to the reports, videos of 10 minor girls and thousands of nude photographs were recovered from the suspects’ custody. In addition to this, the couple in question used to sell explicit videos and photographs to pornography websites for a large sum of money.
Additional District and Sessions Judge awarded a death sentence to Jahangir. A life sentence has also been awarded over rape and recording explicit videos. Moreover, he was given a three-year prison sentence in addition to his life sentence.
Not only that but he also has to pay a fine of Rs2.5 million. Meanwhile, his wife, Mahmood, has also been sentenced to life and has to pay a fine. It must be noted that last year, in 2019, police arrested the couple. They indulged in raping minor girls and filming their explicit videos to blackmail them.
As per City Police Officer (CPO) Muhammad Faisal Rana, the couple had confessed to raping as many as 45 minors and filming their rape. The Rawalpindi police tweeted an update in the case on Monday.
How the police tracked the couple?
It was only after a complaint lodged by a girl with the CPO Rawalpindi that the police tracked and arrested the couple. According to the police, the girl who lodged a complaint was a student of MSc. She said in her statement that the couple lured her into their car. Moreover, she shared that they took her to a house where she was raped and filmed.
A few days earlier, the girl was coming out of her college. A masked woman came to her and began talking to her. After introducing herself as a student at a local girls’ college, the two went for a walk. A car then stopped near them and asked the two women to sit inside.
The masked woman introduced the driver as her close relative and asked her to sit in the car. As soon as the girl was inside the car, black curtains were drawn. The car was taken to a villa located in Gulistan Colony, where the accused raped her at gunpoint, while his wife filmed.
It is unfortunate that the Pakistani government has not done enough to stem sexual violence against women. No practical solution has yet been in action across the country.
Not so long ago, in a horrific rape case reported in Punjab, a female student in Government College (GC) University was gang-raped by four men in Chiniot. The accused and the girl took tuition together. On the day of the incident, he invited the girl to his house for a milad event. He took her to his house where he raped and filmed her along with three friends.
