The victim’s father informed DawnNews that his daughter told her mother that the suspect, a shopkeeper, had molested her. The parents took their minor girl to a doctor because she was bleeding, and subsequently approached the police after the doctor confirmed that she had been abused.
The police filed a case and arrested the suspect, following which the medical examinations of the suspect and the girl were conducted, said Rifaqat.
