Lahore, June 7 (ANI): The mother of a girl who was allegedly gang raped by her classmates has blamed the college for the incident, claiming it is secretly running a prostitution den and porn filmmaking business.

An ACCA student at a local college was said to have been kidnapped, raped and videotaped by seven of her classmates before being thrown outside the college gate.

Her mother lodged a FIR accusing the principal for ignoring her daughter’s repeated complaints of being harassed prior to the incident.

“After what my daughter has gone through, I have now realised that the principal is running a den of prostitution and pornographic film-making business,” the Daily Times quoted her as saying.

“Some of his own people inside the college trap the girls and videotape their acts, and then use the videos to blackmail the girls,” she added.

The widow alleged that the accused victimised her orphaned daughter as a ’soft target’, and police and the college administration were creating more obstacles.

She said: “No widow can imagine what my daughter has experienced and no one could be more grieved than me right now. Everyone is behaving like spectators, instead of helping us. The police has not taken any action against the guesthouse owners so far and they remain busy negotiating with the relatives of all the accused in the police station.”

The Garden Town Police police, on the other hand, claimed that the girl went on a date with one of the accused and her medico-legal report would be required to further the case.

Senior Adviser to Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Zulfiqar Khosa expressed his shock over the incident and promised strict action against those responsible.

The college principal refused to comment on the matter. (ANI)
