Case Filed Against PML-N MPA For Raping Minor Domestic Help
Police on Saturday booked Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MPA Mian Tahir Jamil for allegedly raping a minor girl, who was working at his house as a domestic worker, Express Tribune reported.
According to District In-charge CP&WB Ijaz Aslam Dogar, the minor was sent for medical examination on June 26 — the same day that the incident surfaced before the media.
Along with the medico-legal certificate, the survivor also confirmed that she had been raped twice by the MPA while she was employed in his house, Dogar added. The victim’s father filed an FIR and accused the MPA of raping his daughter twice.
In the FIR, he stated, “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.”
He further said that his daughter finally managed to run away from the MPA’s house on June 25, 2019, and returned to her family.
He also claimed that he was pressurized to not go to the police. “But I need justice because my underage daughter has been tortured and raped several times,” he said.
Meanwhile, MPA Tahir Jamil has rejected the rape accusation, claiming that he has evidence of the family lying about the incident.
He said that he had CCTV footage of the girl leaving his 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.
