Raped girl says forced to sign patch-up deal with Gujranwala ASI on gun-point

A young girl who was allegedly raped by an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of the Gujranwala Police has now claimed she was forced to sign a patch-up deal as her family was also put under threat, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.

The TV channel reported the young girl who earlier announced reconciliation with the accused ASI who allegedly raped her, now claimed that she was forced to sign the stamp paper on the power of gun-point by ASIs Mateen and Mustafa.

“I was forced to leave for Multan after signing the peace document. I have been wrongly framed that my family received Rs5m for the deal,” she claimed. “I got no justice but the Police department has allowed the accused ASI to resume his duty,” she said.

She claimed that she along with her family has been spending time on the roads and receiving threats if they go back to their house.

It is pertinent to note that, Police registered a rape case against an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of the Punjab Police on the application of a 23-year-old girl from Gujranwala on 10th September.

The ASI had allegedly raped the girl. Cantonment SP Hafeezur Rehman Bugti said the girl was shifted to the hospital for her medical examination. He said the case would be investigated on merit and departmental action would be initiated against the policeman if he was found guilty of rape.

Punjab Police Inspector General Inam Ghani had also taken notice of the incident and directed the officials concerned to submit a report on the case.

In her statement, she alleged the ASI had raped her on the pretext of an inquiry when he came to her home for a probe in response to an emergency call against some young men.

The woman’s father alleged in the FIR that the ASI had taken his daughter to a room of his house, locked it from inside and raped her in the name of an inquiry.

Earlier, the suspect ASI, in his statement, denied the allegations and offered to join the investigation into the case.
