KARACHI: An alleged rapist was remanded in judicial custody after he was identified by the victim girl before a magisterial court on Wednesday.
Muhammad Hussain alias Vikki is facing several cases pertaining to police encounter, attempt to murder and illegal arms registered by the Darakhshan police station. In these cases, the court allowed Vikki’s physical remand to the police to interrogate him.
Judicial Magistrate (South) Mumtaz Solangi, who conducted the identification parade in the rape case lodged by the Gizri police station against Vikki, asked the victim girl (Nadia) to identify the accused, to which she said without any hesitation that Vikki had disrespected her.
She told the court that Vikki had contacted her through her cousin Hafeez for employment and when she went to Vikki’s house he confined her in a room and later subjected her to torture and sexual assault.
The girl told the court that after the incident, the accused asked her to keep silence or get ready to face dire consequences. The court would now examine the evidence of prosecution witnesses.
