In the last week of September 2010, four young men raped Zainab Bhayo and made a video recording their heinous act, which they then uploaded on several Internet websites including YouTube.

The police have managed to arrest the culprits, Danish, Waseem, Jahanzeb and Suhail Kaimkhani, and put them behind bars. But parents are not taking any chances. "This is not the ideal environment to send girls to school. We are more concerned about their honour than their careers," they say.

Incidentally, Bhayo's case is not the only one of its kind. It is widely speculated that groups of youngsters are involved in cyber blackmailing in not just Khipro, but other areas like Digri, Mirpurkhas and Sanghar as well.
