Young girl commits self-immolation after gang rape in DGK

DERA GHAZI KHAN: A 22-year-old girl Saima on Monday committed self-immolation after getting no justice in her gang rape case from court in Dera Ghazi Khan (DGK).

Saima burned herself because she found the court verdict in the case “unjust”.

Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif took notice and suspended the Station House Officer (SHO) and two junior officers after this incident.

Sharif summoned a complete report from police and ordered them to restart the case under his supervision.

Saima’s mother said: “She could not get justice from the court, so she committed suicide.”
