The authorities failed to register her complaint that day, instead of filing their complaint both father and daughter were sent to different police check posts.
Tahira could not take the humiliation any longer and left a note for her father before committing suicide.
She clearly wrote in her letter that she is taking her life because she did not get justice. Tomorrow will be able to say you were a father of an honorable daughter with your head raised high.
DPO Bhawalpur reached the location after hearing the incident and has filed the complaint of the father. He has also filed a case against the SHO of the local police station who failed to support the victim.
Tahira belongs to a poor family and apparently the rapist Luqman has some connection with the local high profile people. The police officer did not take any action due to the culprit’s connection.
