Police on Sunday arrested two suspects over charges of raping a 13-year-old girl in Gharibabad locality of Larkana, officials said.
The victim’s father lodged a complaint with the police on Friday, after which a case was registered Under Section 376 of Pakistan Penal Code, said SSP Tanweer Hussain Tunio.
The complainant had informed the police that his daughter was lured by five persons who reportedly gang-raped her at a deserted place.

Moreover, raids are being carried out to arrest the three remaining accused, who still remain unidentified.
Rights groups have frequently pointed out the increasing number of sexual assault cases against women in Pakistan.
