SUKKUR: Four girls who became victims of gang rape refused to receive compensation amount of Rs500,000 from deputy commissioner Khairpur on Sunday. Sources said that Deputy Commissioner Khairpur Munawar Mitiani met victims of gang rape Shazia, Sapna, Kainat and Asia and convinced them to receive compensation of Rs 500,000. The DC told them that he approached them following the directives of Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim
Ali Shah. Sources said that the victim girls refused to take compensation and made it clear upon him that they only need justice and arrest of the rapists. The girls blamed that the Khairpur Police was still reluctant to arrest the rapists even after the passage of two months. They said that if they don not get justice, they would observe hunger strike before the Parliament House in Islamabad.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had taken a notice of the incident and in this regard Marvi Memon had met the victim girls. The Sindh High Court Circuit bench Sukkur had also ordered the SSP Khairpur on July 21 to ensure the arrest of the culprits but to no avail.
