A Madrassa teacher accused of raping and torturing his 10-year-old student in Abbottabad’s Mansehra was arrested by the police on Sunday.
The main suspect identified as Qari Shamsuddin will be presented in court Monday.
According to reports, a child was taken to a hospitalised on Saturday after his madrassah teacher raped him and then beat him.
The uncle of the victim Ali Gohar lodged an FIR with Pulrah police and said that the medical report of the victim had confirmed that he had been sexually assaulted by owner of the madrassa. The medical report revealed that the child was raped multiple times and had bruises on his elbows and knees and his eyes were swollen.
“We want an immediate arrest of the prime suspect in the case as condition of my nephew is still critical,” he added.
The police have registered a case and arrested four alleged partners of the madrassah teacher, including his brother.
Police said the education department has also initiated an investigation against the government teacher.
The madrassah, which was unregistered, has now been sealed and the rest of the students sent home.
The incident received widespread attention and celebrities demanded for strict action to be taken.
