DERA GHAZI KHAN: The Kotmithan police registered a rape case against a van driver on the report of a female passenger.
The complainant, 35, of Cheetawatni, stated in the first information report that she had differences with her husband who lives in Kotmithan. She came from Multan to hand over her son to his father.
She tried to send her son alone by handing him over to the van driver, but her son started crying, to which she reluctantly travelled to the town.
She stated the van arrived in Kotmithan at 10:30pm where she handed over the son to his father. The man received the son at the wagon stand in Kotmithan and left.
The driver finding her alone told the passenger that the bus to Multan would not be available till morning and offered her to spend the night at his sister’s house in Rajanpur. At the Rajanpur wagon stand, the driver raped her and fled.
The Kotmithan police identified the driver and registered a case against him.
Earlier, a woman headed for Karachi was raped by a bus driver at a roadside kiosk in Jampur last month.
