Woman gang raped by two men at Lahore Motorway

LAHORE: A woman was allegedly gang raped by two men in the Gujjarpura area of Lahore on Tuesday night after she was stranded at the motorway.

The woman was a resident of Gujranwala and she was going back to the city from Lahore’s Ring Road at 01:30AM on Tuesday night through the motorway, when her car ran out of petrol at Gujjarpura around an hour later.

The woman waited for her husband and even phoned a relative. She called the Motorway Police’s emergency helpline 130 for help. But she was informed by the operator that she could not be provided assistance as the emergency beat had not been assigned to anyone.

While she was stuck on the motorway, two unidentified men arrived on foot from the nearby area surrounding the motorway and forced the woman and her children out of the car by breaking the car window, cut through the fence around the motorway and allegedly raped her in the fields nearby.

The woman informed that the men stole Rs100,000, jewelry and ATM cards from her before fleeing.
