A 28-year-old pregnant Christian woman in Pakistan was allegedly paraded naked for not working up to the expectation of her employer.
The victim is a resident of Christian Colony Rana Town of Sheikhupura district in Punjab Province. She worked as a maid.
The victim claimed that she was made to walk naked for about half an hour for not up to the expectations of her employer.
She said her employer’s son dragged her outside and tore her clothes with his four friends.
She said the culprits left her naked in the corner of the street where an elderly woman gave her clothes. She was later shifted to hospital by her relatives.
Flanked by her husband and other Christian leaders, the mother of four, said: “I was two-month pregnant and I lost my baby in the incident. Police are not arresting the accused. I will commit suicide if I am not given justice,” she warned.
Her husband said the police had registered a case against the accused after medical report confirmed five injuries of his wife. However, the police had refused to include Anti-Terrorism Act charges in the FIR as demanded by the victim.
An FIR has been registered against Mobin Gondal and his four accomplices under various sections of Pakistan Penal Code, Station House Officer Rana Town Muhammad Khan told PTI.
“We are investigating the claim of the complainant that his wife was paraded naked by the accused,” Khan said, adding the police is trying to arrest the culprits.
Christian leader and Human Liberation Front head Aslam Sahotra warned the community would hold demonstrations across the province if the accused were not arrested.
