Details of the Alleged Pedophile Muhammad Ansar

Reports state that the accused was a resident of Vehari district and used to sell birds on a motorcycle. The alleged pedophile was well acquainted with the neighborhood.

He would lure the minors by showing them content on his mobile phone. Once lured far enough, Muhammad Ansar would abduct them and take them to an unknown location where he allegedly sexually assaulted the minor victims.

Police officials said:

The suspect would leave the victims there and flee from the crime scene. During the police interrogation, Muhammad Ansar confessed to three incidents of abduction and rape which were not reported to the police.

How did the police catch Muhammad Ansar?

Reports state that the accused was wanted by police in various cases registered against him in Bahawalnagar, Multan, and Bahawalpur. According to sources, as many as 10 cases of sexual assault were registered against Muhammad Ansar.

Therefore, Hasilpur Saddar police formed teams to launch a hunt for the alleged kidnapper and rapist. Police relied on modern technology and CCTV footage to catch Muhammad Ansar; the operation was a success.

District Police Officer Muhammad Faisal Kamran said:

This is a successful operation by the police to detain a man responsible for the abduction and rape of minors. Society is in turmoil because of such people, and this spreads panic among the people. These children are our own.

While the police successfully caught Muhammad Ansar, it’s true that many criminals still roam around freely. In a bid to make this country a safe place, police officials advise the people to keep their eyes open at all times and always be aware of their surroundings. It isn’t long before another Muhammad Ansar is born.
