The man was accused of rape in Pir Mahal in Toba Tek Singh district. After the incident, the family of the accused requested victim’s kin to pardon and reconciliation.
Interestingly, the victim’s family decided to let go the incident and demanded for a revenge rape, where the brother of the victim would do the same act with the accused’s sister. According to the report, the brother had sex with the suspect’s sister.
The police were alerted when the two families submitted a legal document consenting to not file case against each other. The senior officers looked into the matter and arrested the culprits.
The reports show that this is the second such incident in the region.
