The Soldier Bazaar police arrested on Monday three minor boys for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor girl. The suspects, aged between 13 and 14 years, were identified as Sheharyar, Ibad and Kashif.
The girl and suspects were all residents of Gul Rana Society in Soldier Bazaar and were neighbours. According to the police, the nine-year-old girl’s father lodged a complaint of sexual assault, after which the police arrested the three boys.
According to initial investigations, the victim was playing outside her house when the suspects forcibly took her into a vacant house and attempted to rape her. However, one of the girl’s friends immediately informed the father about the incident who reached the house and saved his daughter.
A case has been registered, while further investigations are under way.
