The World – Pakistan
Last Thursday, a Pakistani woman filed a complaint, in which she said that she was raped in front of her two children, by two men after she ran out of fuel and her car broke down on a highway in Lahore, according to the American network, CNN.
The Lahore Police are investigating the case, which caused widespread public outrage and led to demonstrations against violence against women across the country.
In his interview with “News 92”, Khan confirmed that he had discussed possible penalties for the perpetrators in the case with ministers in his government.
“I think they (the rapists) should be hanged publicly,” he said. Child rapists and molesters must be publicly hanged. We do not know the true statistics of rape cases, as many cases are not reported. ”
However, Khan said the public hanging would not be acceptable internationally and could affect Pakistan’s trade relations with the European Union. Instead, he suggested that rapists and child molesters undergo “chemical castration or surgery so that they cannot repeat their actions in the future.”
It is noteworthy that the case of the rape of the woman took place last Thursday. Inaam Ghani, the Inspector General of Punjab Province, confirmed that “the police have identified the two suspects through DNA analysis, and I hope we will reach them and arrest them very soon.”
This came after the chief investigator in charge of this case, Omar Sheikh, angered citizens after he declared that the victim had made a mistake when she traveled alone at night without making sure that there was enough fuel in her car.
