Two men who were arrested by the Rawalpindi police for allegedly raping their 14-year-old niece on Friday night, were released from jail by the court on Saturday.
The case was registered at Ratta Amral police station against two brothers, Muhammad Faizan and Muhammad Kamran, on the complaint of the councillor of Dhok Hassu’s union council, Shazia Sajid.
However, the police had reportedly called the girl to the police station again and found a contradiction in her statement. The police immediately presented her before the court.
