Islamabad: The Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights on Tuesday took notice of an incident in which a 16-year- old girl was allegedly paraded naked in her Dera Ismail Khan village last month.
A session of the committee has been called on Wednesday to discuss the matter. The committee has issued notices to Ministry of Human Rights secretary and to secretary of interior Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, asking them to attend Wednesday session.
The Senate committee has also sought a report on the matter. A day earlier, the 16-year- old girl had filed a petition in the Peshawar High Court, narrating the chilling account of what happened to her on Oct 27 at her village Garamat in DI Khan and how the local police supported the suspected culprits by twisting facts in the first information report.
