Your Excellency,

I am William Nicholas Gomes, Human rights activist and Freelance journalist.

I am writing to voice my deep concern regarding the rape of a minor?Christian?girl.

?I am appalled to know that???a?13-year-old Christian girl was allegedly abducted at middle night on 31 March,2015 by three neighborhood Christian youths namely Adil,Ijaz and Saghar when she was sleeping in her house three youth entered by climbing the wall and took her out from the house on gunpoint and made her hostage in a nearby house where she was raped by one of them.

According to ?the?Legal Evangelical Association Development (LEAD), In the meanwhile, the mother of girl was awaken and noticed that outer door was opened and then she saw that her daughter was missing. She started crying and made awaken other family members. They started to search and when reached a nearby house there they heard a noise of crying and weeping of the girl. They entered the house when they saw them fled away and one of them was caught. They called Police on 15 and the police reached the spot and arrested the alleged accused.

Advocate Mushtaq Gill?confirmed?that the victim family reached the concern police station and recorded statement for registration of FIR but the investigator recorded the statement not as the family given the statement. The family was being forced to get compromise with the alleged culprits on the intervention of local political figure.The victim family is very poor and is still under pressure for compromise.

Advocate Mushtaq Gill further confirmed that the victim family approached him ?for ?for legal assistance in the registration of case in the police station. Mr. Gill approached the Police station and got registered FIR NO.104/15 under section 376/511 PPC on dated 6 April, 2015 at Police Station Phool Nagar after on the complaint of victim’s brother after getting the medical of victim which is positive and shows the first time rape.

Please note that I will write a??separate letter to the UN Special Rapporteur on the Question of violence against women calling for his intervention into this matter.

 

I urge the authorities in Pakistan to:

 

1. Take all necessary measures to guarantee the physical and psychological integrity and security of?the rape victim and her family;

2. Carry out an immediate, thorough and impartial investigation into the rape of the girl , with a view to publishing the results and bringing?those responsible to justice in accordance with international standards;

 

Sincerely,

William Nicholas Gomes
