Victims of child porn fear for their lives in Sargodha: report

SARGODHA: Two victims of sexual assault in a recent child pornography scam have apprehended that the suspects, including an Afghan national, would kill them and their families if they pursued their case further, media reports stated.

At a press conference on Monday, both the victims (names withheld) appealed to the Supreme Court to take suo motu notice of their case and order provision of a house to them in some other city as they were not only being harassed by the suspects but also by the local police that, who according to them are involved with the tormentors.

The victims also alleged that the influential suspects had been exploiting several other young students by assaulting and blackmailing them. They requested for safety and said that if given an assurance many other victims would come forward against the gang.

One of the victims had also allegedly filed a complainant with the local police along with video evidence against the suspects but no action was taken against them as the police were in favour of the suspects.

They said one of the suspects was an Afghan national residing here illegally and that he frequently visits his home country.

They alleged the local police station in charge (SHO) not only used derogatory remarks against the victims and their families but was also creating harassment by calling them to the police station at odd timings, adding that the victims were depressed because of this attitude by the police. In result, that they were not ready to visit the police station and that would benefit the suspects.
