Police have arrested a seminary teacher accused of raping and torturing a student in Rawalpindi’s Pirwadhai.

As per reports, the Pirwadhai police registered a first information report (FIR) against Mufti Shahnawaz Ahmed on the complaint of the victim’s father. He has been booked in another case for resisting arrest.

He had gotten pre-arrest interim bail from the relevant court to avoid arrest.


Rawalpindi Police wrote in a tweet that the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Investigation and Superintendent of Police (SP) Rawal will supervise the probe, while merit will be ensured. The victim’s father stated that he had received a phone call from the management of the seminary, asking him to pick up his daughter who had fainted.

The young girl told what had happened after she regained her consciousness saying the teacher had been trying to harass her for the past several months.

She said that the teacher tortured her after she resisted his attempts of sexual harassment. She was then given a drug after which she fainted and didn’t remember what happened after that, the complainant said.
