KASUR: The Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Kasur Video scandal has ordered the medical examination of the victims. On Saturday the fourth day of investigations, the team recorded statements of victims that have recently stepped forward.
The Joint Investigation Team is being led by DIG Malik Abu Bakr KhudaBaksh. The JIT ordered the medical examination of 10 victims including a woman. However representatives of the victims have expressed their displeasure over the conduct of the JIT and have threatened to boycott the Joint Investigation.
The representatives claim the police has been pressurizing the victims to take back their cases; as well as implicating innocent people into the heinous crime which has been dubbed as the Pakistan’s greatest child sex scandal.
The number of complaints filed against the sexual exploitation and abuse of minors by a gang in Kasur has risen to 18 while 15 suspects have been arrested. Statements of over 20 victims as well as 6 police officers including the District Police Officer (DPO) have been recorded.
Since the story of the Kasur Video scandal broke, the entire country has been waiting to see how the investigation unfolds and is hoping that the culprits are taken to task and are made an example off.
