Buriro and his daughter helped arrest the culprits of Kashmore incidents by setting a trap on Thursday.
Three men gang-raped a woman and her minor daughter in Kashmore, Sindh on Tuesday.
The women had filed a complaint to the police after which the police recovered her daughter and arrested the culprits.
Recently, there had been a surge in the cases of sexual violence against women and children. PM Khan had previously made similar pledge to introduce strong laws related to the rape incidents after the motorway incident.
