TOBA TEK SINGH: A 22-year-old girl, who was allegedly raped by a fake ‘peer’, tries to commit suicide by taking poisonous pills after she was denied justice here on Friday.
According to reports, the victim Aafia went to a local peer Muhammad Asghar with her aunt two days ago in ‘Rajana’ area of Toba Tek Singh, where Asghar allegedly raped her.
Influential people of the area forced the girl and her family to not register the case and assured them to resolve the matter through local ‘Panchayat’.
But instead of providing justice, local judiciary supported Asghar. So the girl tried to kill herself by taking poisonous pills.
She was taken to the hospital immediately for medical aid but her condition is not stable yet.
However, Rajana police have arrested Asghar after the news of Aafia made it to media.
