CHITRAL: The alleged rapist of an 11-year-old schoolgirl in Ashiret has been arrested and is in custody.
The police said the suspect has confessed to his involvement in the crime. The report of the medical examination on the victim is yet to be received. The incident occurred two days ago.
The father of the girl complained to the police that his daughter, who is a grade 5th student in a local school, was returning home from the school when the man forcibly took her to a wooded area and raped her.
He said when his daughter did not reach home he went out to search for her and found her unconscious in the wooded area. After seeing the father, the alleged rapist fled leaving behind some of his clothing which the father handed to the police.–S. Nazir Hussain
