Dejected father of rape victim ends life

SHORKOT: Father of a rape victim committed suicide on Tuesday over prolonged delay in the provision of justice.

According to details, an accused identified as Nawaz had sexually assaulted a student of class III while she was returning from school in Shorkot some six months earlier.

The case was being heard by a local court but the only witness of the crime refused to appear in the court to testify.

Disappointed over the situation, Safdar, the father of the ill-fated girl, committed suicide.

The body was shifted to hospital for postmortem and the police have started an investigation.
