Two families arrested for agreeing ‘revenge rape’ in TT Singh
Both sides agreed to reconcile on the condition of a 'revenge rape' of the suspected rapist's sister.
A first information report (FIR) registered by Pirmahal police stated that on March 20 Wasim Saeed of Gharibabad in Pirmahal had allegedly raped ‘N’, the Dawn reported.
Following the rape, his family sought pardon and reconciliation, the family of ‘N’ placed a condition that her brother would commit the same act with the suspect’s sister for reconciliation, and 12 members of both families approved the idea in a joint meeting.
On March 21, the ‘revenge rape’ was committed with the suspect’s sister ‘R’.
The unlawful actions, called "wani" in Urdu, are still practiced in parts of rural Pakistan, where village councils often settle disputes.
