LARKANA: The doctor and woman manager of a vocational training centre arrested on Sunday in Banguldero town on the charges of raping a trainee girl and abetment in the offence, respectively, were produced in the court of Civil Judge and Judicial Magistrate-II Ahmed Ali Gabol in Ratodero, who remanded them in jail custody for 14 days.
An FIR (No. 13/2018) was registered against them under Sections 376, 337-J, 354A and 506/2 of the Pakistan Penal Code on Sunday at the Lashari police station when the trainee girl alleged that the pair took her to Karachi on the pretext of her eyesight check-up and treatment but upon their return to the village, the doctor subjected her to criminal assault after giving her some pills and injection at his clinic.
She claimed that the doses were meant to make her fall into semi-conscious state and enable him to commit the offence.
Earlier in the day, relatives of the complainant girl protested over the “undue favour” extended to the suspected rapist when they saw him being taken to court by police in car instead of prisoners’ vehicle. The Ratodero police later impounded the car, sources said.
