Description
KASUR: Ganda Singh police booked a gang of 15 suspects and arrested three of them on charges of sodomy, extortion and threatening `hundreds’ of boys and girls and recording their videos in Hussain Khanwala village.

Sheikhupura range Regional Police Officer Sahibzada Shahzad Sultan visited the Ganda Sindh Police Station and assured the villagers of justice. Police have lodged four first information reports (FIRs) on the complaint of as many victim families. Most of other victims were reluctant to speak up.

The gang, according to the FIRs, had recorded videos while sodomising young boys and raping girls and extorted millions of rupees as well as gold jewellery from villagers since 2009. Reportedly, the entire village was aware of the alleged offence but no one dared report it to police as the suspects were allegedly influential.

According to a villager, a year ago a woman had contacted Ganda Singh police when the suspects had sodomised her young son, but she was forced to reconcile.

Another villager in Hussain Khanwala, who requested anonymity, brought the matter to the fore. He claimed a political figure had tried to occupy 93 kanals of state property in the village when a non-governmental organisation told him they would provide him funds to build a school and sports ground. The piece of land was once bought in an auction by the suspects but a stay order had been issued on its purchase. The suspects allegedly warned the influential man against the land’s occupation after which he decided to encourage victim families to raise their voice.

Ganda Singh police registered four FIRs against 15 suspects under sections 377, 384, 385 and 506 of the Pakistan Penal Code. Five of the suspects were government employees and had obtained a bail.
