Rawalpindi police arrest teacher for allegedly raping 7-year-old student – Pakistan

Rawalpindi police have filed a complaint and arrested a teacher for allegedly raping a student, it was reported Thursday.

Police spokesman Sajjadul Hassan said the suspect, N *, was taken into custody on Wednesday evening.

The case was registered at the Saddar Wah Cantt Police Station following a complaint by the victim’s mother, Nighat Bibi, under section 376 (sentence for rape) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

According to the first information report (RIF) registered on November 16, a copy of which is available from Dawn.com, the mother said her daughter, A *, aged six or seven, was a victim of the crime while in school.

“On returning home, the girl told me in tears that a male teacher – whose name she did not know – at her school had sexually assaulted her,” FIR said, citing FIR.

The complainant said she took her daughter to Tehsil Headquarters Hospital for a medical examination, but hospital staff told her to come back with the police. She went home and called her stepfather, then went to the police station, she said.

“I ask for justice to be done for my daughter by taking legal action against the teacher,” the mother asked in the FIR.

Potohar Division Police Superintendent Tasawar Iqbal said a “zero tolerance policy” to violence, abuse and harassment against women and children was ensured.

On November 6, in a separate incident, Police in Rawalpindi said they filed a complaint and arrested two men for allegedly raping their 14-year-old niece.

Last month, two children were allegedly sexually assaulted in two separate incidents in the Kahuta and Jatli areas of Rawalpindi, according to police reports.

In September, a person complained to police that a seminary teacher allegedly sexually assaulted and tortured his younger brother within the confines of the Waris Khan Police Zone.
