Horrific accounts of the rape and murder incidents have been reported from parts of the province frequently.

The police while quoting the statement given by the victim said that the girl, who works as a domestic helper, was sexually abused after she consumed an intoxicating substance.

“The girl claimed that the substance was given to her by the female landlord,” they said.

The female domestic helper was moved to a district hospital by the authorities for medical examination as police have started a probe into the alleged rape case after registering an FIR at Rajanpur City police station.
