LAHORE: Police arrested on Saturday a schoolteacher for allegedly raping a 14-year-old student in the hostel of a private cadet school in Lahore’s Garden Town area.
The child’s parents registered a case against the school teacher, identified as Azhar Iqbal, and the police arrested the suspect.
While speaking to a private TV channel, the boy’s father, Zaheer Ahmed, said, “I appeal to the chief justice of Pakistan to ensure justice to my child. This issue is not just about my child but all of our children.” He further remarked that beasts such as Azhar Iqbal should be taken to task and publicly hanged.
The teenager’s mother said that she wants the school’s principal and others to be punished. “I just want justice for my child,” she added.
