Rawalpindi: Imam-e-Masjid held for raping minor boy
Imam of a mosque has been arrested for rape of a 12-year-old boy.
In the city of Rawalpindi, Imam of a mosque has been arrested for rape of a 12-year-old boy.
As per SP Saddar Mazhar Iqbal, the young boy Jawad Zareef used to come to Dhamial Camp’s masjid to attain religious knowledge from Molvi Liaquat, the culprit.
Jawad had complained to his parents many times of his teacher’s wrongdoings but they didn’t believe him. To them, it wasn’t possible that a religious cleric could do something like this.
The SP further told that Molvi Liaquat, along with a few of his supporters, protested against this but the Police continued their investigation, and as a result of this, the Imam-e-masjid was found guilty of the unlawful deed.
Mazhar also stated that a report has been submitted in Police Station Saddar Beroni against Molvi Liaquat, and a DNA test will also be conducted.
Muhammad Faisal Rana, City Police Officer, has issued a notice to SP Saddar to present the challan with solid evidence so that the guilty is severely punished for his crime, and so no one else in the society dares to do such a thing.
