We have heard of such cases in India but never in Pakistan. The girl’s clothes were torn. We took her down and moved her to hospital. Her body had signs of resistance. We have arrested three individuals who have confessed o the crime” he said.Police said her parents spent all night looking for her and found her body hanging the next morning. Only last month, a similar case was recorded in India where two female cousins were gang raped and later hanged from a tree.
