Toba Tek, Pakistan: September 18, 2013.

All the accused policemen and the private person dragged her out of her house and they threw her the yard kicking, slapping and punching the young girl. The policeman, Javed and Arif Gujar tore her clothes (shirt and trousers) that she became completely naked in front of a large crowd.
After the brutal torture and inhuman violence on the young lady, the policemen tried to forced her to sit on motorcycle in the middle of two male policemen. When she refused it resulted in more torture. The policemen took the young lady to the police station where she remained in illegal custody with no documented arrest. After five days, Aug 5, 2013, Sadaf Saddique (Attorney at law), along with others from Pakistan Christian Congress, media, NGOs and others went to the police station to ask about the young lady. The police first denied, but then affirmed the custody of the young lady to avoid pressure of the NGOs and others present. The police falsely accused the young lady in a robbery case.
Mr. Sadaf Saddique (Attorney at Law), Mr. Akram Waqar Gill CEO Pakistan Christian Congress, Mr. Shahzad Fate president Pakistan Christian Congress Toba Tek Singh, Rashid Jalal and Ayub Anjum rights activists, struggled together for justice for the young girl. After a long battle and procrastinated litigation, we were able to prove that the young girl was falsely accused by policemen to cover their brutal and inhuman violence. During the process to free the young girl, the police tried to frame the young lady as a convict. The police also conspired together to stop a medical exam, so that their torture of the young lady could not be confirmed.
After being released on bail, Iqra Saddique with the help of Mr. Sadaf Saddique (Attorney at Law) has, today on 18-09-2013, submitted her application to the District Police Officer. Iqra brought charges against the policemen who tore her clothes exposing her in public, tortured and kidnapped her and then sexually tormented her in illegal police custody.
The Pakistan Christian Congress and society will not let this severe and harsh persecution to go in vain. If the caretakers of the society will infringe upon the rights of the people, then who else can the public trust? That is the question every reasonable person must ask!
Please pray that God may allow us to stand firm against all kinds of persecutions and that we continue to be the watchmen of the rights and lives of the oppressed, the poor and the needy ones!
It is also noteworthy to mention the crime of the policemen falls within the ambit of Section 354 A Pakistan Penal Code and is punishable by death sentence. If a woman is exposed naked to public view and seen by people on the street, the crimes falls under section 345A PPC.
