LAHORE: A 3-year-old girl, who was found raped in Green Town, is still battling for life at a hospital here, said police sources on Saturday.
The baby girl was sleeping along with her mother on a charpoy in front of their small house in Maryam Colony when she was abducted by an unidentified man on Friday night.
Police investigators said the victim was recovered unconscious from an empty plot at least 90 minutes after her abduction. According to hospital sources, the girl was repeatedly raped. She was being provided medical treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of Jinnah Hospital till Saturday night.
Police registered a case against an unidentified rapist on the complaint of the victim’s father and are investigating; however no arrest was made yet. The father of the girl, who is a labourer, told the police that a massager was strolling in the street during loadshedding and he might have abducted the baby. Police have prepared a sketch of the suspect and CIA police launched a hunt for the paedophile.
A police officer said that no arrest had so far been made in the case. He, however, added that police were using all resources to apprehend the culprit. Sources said that police had taken into custody some massagers from the locality from where the girl was kidnapped.
In September, a 5-year-old rape victim was found dumped outside Ganga Ram Hospital in Lahore. Though the brutal assault had brought international condemnations but the police investigators failed to track down the rapists.
