In a harrowing incident that took place in Islamabad, 3 brothers including a religious scholar, were taken into custody and sent to Adiala Jail for allegedly raping their own sister.
The Police confirmed that the 15-year-old victim was the only sister of the three suspects who are aged between 22 and 30. He added that the brothers threatened the victim and told her to keep quiet in the name of the holy book.
The girl further shared in the FIR that she remained silent as she had no one else to depend upon and that the culprits sexually abused her for over 10 times.
The police were approached by a friend of the victim’s late father who is a doctor, and to whom the girl disclosed her agony when she visited him for treatment.
