LAHORE: Rights campaigners staged protest rallies across Pakistan yesterday against the rape of a five-year-old girl here whose condition is now relatively stable.
Police still have no clue who carried out the attack despite detaining several suspects and releasing most of them after questioning, a law enforcement official said. The girl was kidnapped on Thursday and brutally raped in Lahore.
Police said the girl was found outside a hospital at around 8pm on Friday, a day after she went missing from a low-income neighbourhood in the city.
“Her condition is relatively stable but still she is in the Intensive Care Unit,” doctor Farzand Ali, medical superintendant in the Services hospital said.
Senior police officer Zulfiqar Hameed said investigators had questioned several suspects but have yet to formally arrested anyone. AFP
