Man acquitted of rape

LAHORE: A session’s court on Tuesday acquitted a man of a girl’s rape after the complainant and the witnesses resiled from their previous statements.

The Factory Area police had registered a case against Saeed Rehman in 2019 on the complaint of his neighbour Muhammad Iftikhar.

The complainant alleged that the suspect raped his 20-year-old daughter.

A prosecutor told the court that the complainant and the witnesses resiled from their statements. He said the complainant claimed that the FIR was a result of misunderstanding.

The complainant told the court that he did not want to pursue the case anymore.

He said he would have no objection to the acquittal of the suspect.

Additional District & Sessions Judge Jamshed Mubarik acquitted the suspect of the charge.
