According to the reports, the incident took place on Friday, June 7. The victim girl belongs to the Hindu community and has been identified as Jamna Saami. The minor was forcefully intoxicated and then subjected to gang rape by two men. She was allegedly then left in a sports ground around her district.
Pictures and videos that were taken by people who later found her went viral online, causing an outcry online. Regarding the victim Hindu girl’s exact age, conflicting reports have emerged. However, most local news sources have claimed that she was around 12 years old.
Acting swiftly following the social media condemnation, the police have arrested the accused and registered a first information report (FIR) against them. But are irked by the unexplained delay in the action.

The people asked for better protection of children and minorities in Pakistan. They also spoke women’s safety in the country, which is a prime concern right now particularly in the light of recent events.
Prior to the arrests, Twitter user @bilalfqi posted:
“11-year-old girl in Sujawal, Sindh, reportedly abducted, administered an intoxicant and raped. She was later beaten and left at ground. Sindh government must ensure that the men who did this are behind bars ASAP! [as soon as possible] #JusticeForJamna”
Here is what the social media community had to say:
Arrests have been made by Sindh Govt am told. This a heinous series of crimes, not just one. Even after culprits r behind bars this innocent young girl will have trouble regaining any kind of life. I would urge all concerned not to share her videos. #Justice4Jamna https://t.co/Fi9kuda2jn

Pakistan is full of morons with no morals or fear of the judgment day who go unpunished. Child rape murders & terrorist mass murders are 2 reasons the death penalty cannot be taken off the books. Can't describe how traumatised I feel today. Humanity has truly died#Justice4Jamna https://t.co/43tJcfPcUN
