According to sources from the Faisalabad police, two men were booked for allegedly sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy at gunpoint. Both suspects had fled when residents of the neighbourhood arrived, they added. The survivor’s father, on whose behalf the first information report was registered, claimed that one suspect had kept the child captive in his house before calling an accomplice. The two then reportedly raped the 12-year-old boy at gunpoint but escaped as neighbours gathered outside. Police said raids were being carried out to search for and arrest the two alleged rapists.
