KARAK, Dec 9: Unidentified gunmen shot dead a young man as he came out of a court in Takht Nusrati after the proceedings of the alleged gang rape of his sister in Karak on Friday.
Alamzeb Khattak, 24, had steadfastly supported his sister`s fight for justice in the face of threats and unrelenting pressure from the accused who include three policemen.
His cold-blooded murder in the precinct of a court prompted the provincial home department order a thorough and transparent probe into any security lapse
... Police had arrested the four accused in the rape case, including inspector Peer Mohsin Shah, sub-inspector Ameer Mohammad, assistant sub-inspector Hakeem Khan and one Qamar Ali, on December 3 after their pre-arrest bail was cancelled by an additional district and sessions judge.
... A family member of Mr Alamzeb said there was a brief altercation between Hakeem Khan`s brothers and the slain person on the premises of the court after the latter objected to the `friendly` treatment extended to the accused by police. ... The victim, who was a ninth grade student when she was kidnapped last year, has now been in advance stage of pregnancy.
On the orders of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister, a committee headed by provincial home secretary Mohammad Azam Khan was formed to look into the alleged gang rape. The committee expressed dismay over the investigation into the case and made many recommendations.
Of late, the girl`s family alleged that two people claiming to be associated with a group of the Taliban visited them and warned them against pursuing case against Hakeem Khan besides wanting abortion of pregnancy.
Also, the slain person had claimed that family members and friends of the accused had been pressuring his family, including his sister, for an out-of-court settlement.

...had steadfastly supported his sister's fight for justice in the face of threats and unrelenting pressure from the accused who include three policemen. His cold-blooded murder in the precinct of a court prompted the provincial home department order "a thorough and transparent probe into any security lapse"......maybe by the local police department. Yeah, that should work.
Dear God, please don’t let this poor girl be married to one of the rapists.
Wouldn’t that be a great feat of Islamic jurisprudence? Test the baby to find out who the father is, marry the girl off, the husband will kill her within a few months because he saw three other men have intercourse with her, and the victims’ family will have lost two children to murder and a grandchild to the possession of enemies.
...maybe by the local police department. Yeah, that should work.
No, I think they are too busy raping schoolgirls.
So... the girl isn’t on trial?
Typical Pakistani justice, I’m afraid.
Muslim murderers protected by the silence of American feminists.
