KARACHI: Police have registered a case of alleged gang rape of a woman on Zakaria Express bound for Karachi.
The victim has been taken to Jinnah Hospital for medical examination, SSP Railway said.
The victim told Railway City Police that she had boarded a train from Multan to Karachi on May 27. She said that three persons including ticket checker Zahid and Aqib had raped her.
She said she could not buy a ticket from the station in a hurry. “I got an economy class ticket. Later, the ticket checker asked me to come with him because he had arranged a berth for me in the AC box,” he told police.
The incident took place in the AC compartment between Rohri and Hyderabad. Raids are being carried out to arrest the accused.
