LAHORE – Two armed men raped a woman in presence of her children and stranded them on the motorway after snatching money and other valuables on Wednesday.
According to the police report, the resident of Gujranwala was on her way back to the city from Lahore’s Ring Road at 01:30 AM on Tuesday night, when her car ran out of petrol near Gujjarpura around an hour later.
The woman also phoned the Motorway Police’s 130 emergency helpline for assistance but was told by the operator that the emergency beat had not been assigned to anyone.
The men raped the women then deprived her of Rs100,000, jewellery and ATM cards before fleeing.
