Pakistani police officer allegedly raped a woman in her home

GUJRANWALA: A cop has been booked for allegedly raping a young woman in the city's Aziz Colony, police said Monday, adding that he had secured interim bail.

According to the first information report (FIR) registered at the Aroop Police Station on behalf of the survivor's father, assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Mubashir was called to the young woman's home in Gujranwala for an inquiry into her complaint about a few men.

The woman's father stated in the FIR that the ASI sexually assaulted his daughter when he arrived at their home.

The woman has accused the cop of threatening to file a complaint against her if she spoke up about the alleged rape.

In a video statement that was published on social media, the woman — reportedly in her early 20s — also alleged that police chose not to address their complaint or take action when the family approached the local station house officer (SHO).
