SWAT, 27 August: A teenage girl from Kalam area of district Swat has alleged that she was subjected to sexual assault by four men for 25 days but police did not take any action against the accused.

“I was kidnapped by Abdul Manan, Zahir, Zeeshan and Jibran. Initially, they kept me for 12 days in Jalband area and later shifted me to Peshawar. I was sexually assaulted for 25 days by the accused, Noor Jehan, recalled while speaking at a news conference here on Saturday.

Flanked by her father Akhtar Gul, the 17-year old Noor Jehan said her captors tried to sell her but she succeeded to run away from their captivity.

“I appeal to the government and police high ups to arrest the accused and give them exemplary punishment,” she said.

Her father said he lodged an FIR with the police but they did not take any action against the accused persons.

“Since the accused persons are influential, none of them has been arrested so far. The police said they have secured bail from the court,” he added.

“Such people are not human. They are devils in the guise of human beings. They should be unveiled so that they do not dare to commit the same inhuman crime again,” Akhtar Gul remarked.

Meanwhile, a public prosecutor in Swat, Sohail Sultan, remarked that police has done criminal negligence in the case.

“Police should have arrested the accused,” he said and added that it was a high profile case and the court would award exemplary punishment to the accused.
