Accusations against Yasir Shah
The aunt of the girl said that she has known Yasir Shah for quite some time. She took her niece with her to attend a party at the house of Yasir Shah in Lahore. The woman said that two to three months after returning from the party she seemed “unwell and disturbed”. Upon insistence, the girl said that Yasir’s friend Farhan took her number and later on proposed to her. He used to get Yasir to talk to her.
“On August 14, when she was returning from tuitions, Farhan made her get into a taxi and took her to a flat in F-11 where he raped her at gunpoint and even made a video,” the aunt said, as the police recorded this in the FIR.
