Pakistanis are in an uproar demanding hanging rapist publicly after robbers gang-rape woman seeking help on the motorway in Punjab.
The incident has sent shockwaves throughout the nation as a woman was brutally gang-raped in front of her children on Lahore – Sialkot Motorway.
Meanwhile, Federal Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari in a reaction to the incident said that the ministry’s regional office “immediately asked for an action report from the police”.
And that the ministry received the report as well as a copy of the first information report (FIR) of the incident.
On the horrific Lahore Motorway entry point gang rape case, MOHR regional office immed asked for action report from police. FIR copy and progress report is with us at MOHR. I have removed the same from post to avoid sharing details of the victim.— Shireen Mazari (@ShireenMazari1) September 10, 2020
Though after the incident last night, Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar took a “strict notice” and directed the Inspector General of Police to submit a report.
CM Buzdar further instructed for arresting those involved in the incident as quickly as possible, adding that “justice would be provided to the woman”.
موٹروے کے قریب خاتون سے زیادتی کے واقعے پر وزیراعلیٰ پنجاب کا سخت نوٹس— Government of Punjab (@GOPunjabPK) September 9, 2020
انسپکٹر جنرل پولیس سے رپورٹ طلب کر لی
اس سنگین جرم میں ملوث مجرموں کو جلد از جلد گرفتار کیا جائے – وزیراعلیٰ کی ہدایت
"انشاء اللہ مظلوم خاتون کو انصاف فراہم کیا جائے گا" – وزیراعلیٰ عثمان بزدار
The incident has left the netizens furious demanding strict action against the culprits. This is undoubtedly a matter of national shame and proof of the paralysis of the entire system of implementation of the law.
It was more than disgusting to find out that comments shared by CCPO while talking to a local news channel.
After the horrific motorway incident, citizens register their protest with hashtags #HandRapist, #hangrapistspublicly.
And they removed a competent IG for this inept new CCPO. Now i get why he wasn’t promoted before. No words to explain my disgust and anger https://t.co/e1C6f5kIY2— Usama Malik (@UsamaMaalik1) September 10, 2020

A mother got rapped in front of her children what worst could you expect? It is the sheer negligence of the state which allows these predators to attack on innocent women and it happened in so many cases when the criminal system went easy on the rapists.
