Karachi: A minor girl was subjected to sexual abuse on Sunday afternoon; however, the prompt reporting of the case resulted in the immediate arrest of the offender, said the station house officer of New Karachi Industrial Area.
NKIA SHO Rehmatullah said a labourer residing in Khamiso Goth filed a complaint with the police that his five-year-old daughter was sexually abused by a shopkeeper.
Police took the girl to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where they were informed that no lady doctor was available, following which she was taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, where a lady doctor confirmed the girl was not raped but sexually abused.
The minor told the police that while playing outside her house, she left to buy some sweets. When she reached a general store, the shopkeeper called her inside and sexually abused her.
SHO Rehmatullah said the police traced the accused shop owner, identified as Chanesar Limbumal, and locked him up.
