According to police authorities, the victim, who hailed from Toba Tek Singh, was gang-raped by three men in a vehicle on the motorway.

As per the FIR, lodged on the complaint of the victim’s aunt, her niece got a message from a woman in which she was informed about a job at a boutique in Gojra and when the girl reached at the mentioned spot, the culprits took her in a car with them and raped her on the motorway.

The suspects then threw the girl near Faisalabad Interchange and fled the scene.

Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar and Inspector-General (IG) Rao Sardar Ali have already taken notice of the heinous crime.

The CM and the IG have asked for a report from the RPO Faisalabad and ordered the immediate arrest of all suspects.

On September 9, 2020, a woman who was travelling from Lahore to Gujranwala along with her children, was looted and raped by two men on Lahore-Sialkot motorway when her car stalled either due to shortage of petrol or some fault.

Later, a court sentenced two men to death for a rape that sparked a countrywide outrage.
