Police rescue Hafizabad woman held captive for 10 years by brothers
The law enforcers received a tip-off about a 50-year-old woman allegedly locked away over an inheritance dispute following which they sprung into action.
According to the first investigation report (FIR) registered against the two men, the informant told police that the woman's screams did not let neighbours sleep all night and it sounded like she was close to death, urging that she be rescued on a humanitarian basis.
The man refused to let police enter the house after which the officials broke the padlock and found a semi-conscious woman locked up inside a room.
The victim was later sent to the Rescue 1122 Trauma Centre and police arrested the two men and registered an FIR under sections 344, 346, 498A, 506, 186 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code, Dawn News reported.
Punjab Minister for Human Rights Ijaz Alam, who was also present at the time of the raid, assured that the woman would be provided the best possible care while the culprits would be given an exemplary punishment.
