Six-year-old rape victim being treated at Lyari hospital

Karachi: A six-year-old Hindu girl who was allegedly raped in an area of the Umerkot district 10 days ago was brought to Karachi on Wednesday, and is being treated at the Lyari General Hospital.

A student of Class 1, the girl was playing near her house in the Ghulam Nabi Shah area on December 3, when one Hashim Magiro, a gambling den runner, allegedly kidnapped and raped her. There were also unconfirmed reports that the girl was gang-raped.

As the victim reached Karachi, civil rights groups went to see her at the Lyrai hospital and expressed their solidarity with the family. “We talked to the family of the girl and offered them legal aid,” said Rushksana Siddiqui of War Against Rape.

Family sources said the girl was first taken to the Umerkot district hospital, where there was no doctor on duty. Then, they took her to Mirpurkhas, a distance of 76 kilometres.

Her condition was deteriorating as she was bleeding profusely, but the medical staff at the Mirpurkhas hospital did not pay any attention to her. According to the family, she was treated the same way in Hyderabad. The incident has sent shock waves through the Ghulam Nabi Shah area, and sparked a number of protests in front of the local press club.
