The girl said that she approached the Banni Police Station but they refused to file a report and she was only contacted by police when her video started circulating online.
Apart from being forced to strip off her clothes and being filmed on the road, the girl also complained about the men gang raping her at knifepoint. The police says that the investigation has been widened after the statement.
The Rawalpindi police said that an attempt was made to arrest the accused but their families resisted and the men were released on pre-arrest bail until August 7.
There have also been other complaints against the accused regarding drug peddling and rape of a boy filed at the Banni police station.
It is disturbing how a teenage girl who was stripped, filmed and possibly gang-raped in Rawalpindi was turned away by police without a complaint being registered only to be contacted when a video of her surfaced online.
