A Police officer named Muhammad Bux volunteered his daughter to catch rapists in the Kashmore gang-rape case, on Wednesday.
The alleged gang-rape case of a woman and her five-year-old daughter in Kashmore sparked outrage in the country. According to Police reports, a man called in the woman from Karachi, duping the latter with a job offer. The suspect subjected the woman and her daughter to rape for two days subsequently. The man had promised the woman a job in northern Sindh’s Kashmore district, police said on Thursday.

The woman reached Kashmore but two days later reported to Police that the suspect had raped her after she reached his residence, and he then handed over to another man living near the Sindh-Balochistan border. That man also allegedly raped the woman, reported Police.
She complained that the suspect has held her five-year-old daughter, and he would only let her go when she will bring him another woman. According to the woman, the suspect even gave her the expense to return to Karachi.
Kashmore Police then came up with a plan to catch the culprits. The ASI and his family then volunteered in the action.
