Outrage As Woman Raped At Gunpoint On Lahore Motorway In Front Of Children

A woman was allegedly raped by two men at gunpoint in front of her children after her car ran out of gas near Gujjarpura, Lahore.

Police said the woman, a resident of Gujranwala, was returning to the city from Lahore on Tuesday night when her car ran out of petrol.

Geo News reported that the woman called her husband, who advised her to call Motorway Police for help until he got there. However, the Motorway Police operator excused from helping the woman, saying the emergency beat had not been assigned to anyone.

As she was left to her own devices on the deserted road, two armed men approached the vehicle and smashed its windows.

They then took the woman and her children out of the car and took them into a nearby field after cutting the fence along the road to rape her. The report said the woman was also deprived of Rs100,000, jewelry, and ATM cards.

The woman was later shifted to a hospital. Police have registered a case and the medical report of the survivor has been forwarded for forensic analysis.

Meanwhile, the Motorway Police said the area where the incident happened did not fall under their jurisdiction as the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway was completed recently and Motorway Police has not yet been handed over its charge.

Outrage on social media:

Following the reports of the rape, people on Twitter expressed concern over the state of lawlessness in the country and urged strong measures to put an end to such incidents.
