MPA belonging to Pakistan Muslim League (N), Tahir Jamil from Faisalabad, has been accused of sexually abusing his teenage housemaid, Saima. A rape and child labor case has been filed against the MPA himself, his two sons, named Afaq and Saad and his wife Bano.
The housemaid alleged that not only was she raped by Tahir and his sons, but his wife also subjected her to physical abuse. Riaz Masih, the father of the alleged victim, filed the FIR.
He said that his daughter was working at MPA’s place for six months. But a few days back, she was raped by him, twice. He added that the sons of the accused had been subjected her to harassment for a while and his wife would also beat her up for petty issues, apart from making her work day and night.
Saving her life, the teenage maid ran away from the MPA’s place on June 25th and reunited with her family.
FIR was filed against the accused:
“I am a poor person living in a rented house with my children whereas, my daughter Saima who is 14-15 years old, was working at the MPA’s house for the last six months. A couple of days ago, she told me that the MPA raped her twice and his sons have been harassing her while his wife beats her over petty issues besides making her work day and night. They had warned my daughter of beating her up more if she ever dared to tell me anything,” Riaz said, in the FIR.
MPA denies allegations:
MPA has denied the allegations, saying that he is being blackmailed and trapped by the alleged victim’s family to mint money. He added that he has evidence of the minor girl leaving the house in the form of CCTV footage.
“The CPWB report does not prove rape specifically. As far as the physical abuse by my wife is concerned, I have CCTV footage of the girl leaving our house. In the video, she can clearly be seen leaving with hair; however, she was bald when she was presented as a victim,” he said, as a local media source reported.
“Further, I was in the assembly on the day the father-daughter duo has accused me of rape and I have footage of that as well. The girl originally belongs to Tandlianwala and is linked with a gang that extorts money from citizens by blackmailing them through such accusations,” he concluded.
