She told the judge that she had fallen in love with one Mohammad Adil and left her aunt’s home to marry him.
Sonia, 16, who belonged to Haripur and was living with her aunt in Karachi, said they came to Mansehra and were staying at a hotel there, but Adil left her after three days and the police arrested her. She alleged the cops took her to the City Police Station where they raped her.
The victim girl said she was later shifted to the Kaghan Police Station where she was also gang-raped by the cops. “I don’t know the names of the police officials who raped me at both the police stations but I can recognise them if they are produced in front of me,” Sonia told the judge.
District Police Officer Mansehra, Sher Akbar told media that station house officers of City Police Station and Kaghan Police Station had been suspended. He said the first information report (FIR) had also been lodged in light of the victim’s statement.
