She was taken to a medical centre and survived her horrific ordeal

The young girl clawed through the mud and yelled at passers-by until someone took her to a nearby health clinic.

Her distraught dad then went to the police seeking justice for his daughter. But the cops initially refused to investigate.

It wasn’t until the Lahore High Court Chief Justice got involved that police started looking into the dad’s allegations. The cops were instructed to arrest the rapists and submit a report to the court as soon as possible.
