After the heart-wrenching story that stunned Pakistan, another incident has come to light as a man tried to rape a five-year-old girl in Yazman, southern Punjab, on Friday.
The girl cried for help as the perpetrator tried to rape her when she was alone at her home. She screamed at the top of her voice, soon after which her parents heard the distressed girl.
Her parents had been away from home to mow a nearby lawn when they heard the screaming of their daughter. As they rushed to their house, they realised that the girl's voice came from the neighbouring house.
The parents witnessed the man attempting to rape their daughter. However, as he saw the parents approaching towards him, he tried to flee from the spot.
Later, he was caught by locals and handed over to police. An FIR has been lodged by the girl's parents against the accused.
According to Daily Times, this is said to be the fourth case that has reportedly come to light in the past two weeks.
