ATTOCK, April 29: The relatives of a nine-year-old girl allegedly abducted by a gang of prostitutes a few days ago staged a protest rally here on Tuesday. The protesters asked the district administration to recover the girl and bring the perpetrators to justice.
The father of the girl, Mansoor Khan along with some relatives and local people held the rally at Fowara Chowk holding placards and banners inscribed with slogans for recovery of the girl and against prostitution den operators.
The aggrieved father told media persons on the occasion that he lived near Pirwadhai in Rawalpindi, where a woman allegedly ran a brothel. He said a few days ago his daughter suddenly went missing and later someone told him that the woman had abducted the girl and taken her to Attock, where she also operated a prostitution den. A case was registered with the Pirwadhai police who arrested two persons – Tariq alias Kuba and a PCO owner – but the main culprit and the gang leader was still at large.
He alleged that it was an organised gang of prostitutes who abducted minor girls and engage them in immoral activities later in life.
The protesters demanded that the district police officer Attock and other government functionaries should take immediate steps for the recovery of the girl.
