Popular Pashto singer, Nazia Iqbal, makes allegations against her brother saying he has raped her two daughters, as reported by Dawn.com.
According to the Rawat police station SHO, the accused has been arrested and a case registered against him under Section 376 (punishment of rape) and Section 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
Police states the 19-year-old perpetrator was caught by Iqbal red-handed by Iqbal while sexually harassing her daughter at her residence located in Rawalpindi.
The singer told the police that she has two sons and two daughters aged 8 and 12. However, owing to professional commitments, both she and her husband had to be away from home and thus she had to call her brother from Swat to look after her children.
The singer revealed that her daughters “would often complain to her that their uncle indulged in ‘wrong acts’ with them and would show them scary movies, threatening to kill them if they told anyone”.
“One Sunday morning when I got up to prepare breakfast, I heard the cries of my younger daughter coming from the adjacent room. Upon entering the room, I discovered that her clothes had been taken off and my brother was sexually abusing her,” Nazia Iqbal told police.
SHO Rawat Inspector Sheikh Khizr Hayat states that “the girls underwent a medical examination and initial reports confirm that both girls were subjected to sexual abuse”.
