A seven year old girl was kidnapped, raped and murdered by two men in Kaka Sahib, Nowshera district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The men have since been arrested.
The police said that the two men have been arrested on Sunday after the residents of the area handed over the two men. According to police, the area residents planned on punishing the suspects themselves but decided to hand them over to the authorities.
Noor’s uncle told the police that that she went to Madrassa a day before but never returned home. The family then set out to look for her and found her being strangled by two men while they were attempting to drown her.
The two men ran away throwing Hooz Noor into a water tank when they found out that they had been discovered and by the time she was recovered from the tank, Noor had already passed away.
According to the area’s residents, the seven year old was raped before being killed by the two suspects.
Twitter has been trending with the hashtag #JusticeforHooznoor, asking for justice for Hooz Noor, the seven year old girl.
This isn’t the first case of a minor being sexually abused and cases like this surface almost every other day. Just three weeks ago a 10 year old boy was raped and left in critical condition by his Madrassa teacher.
Another rape case involving a female litigant came forward just a few days ago. The woman was raped by a Judicial officer in his chamber.
