The survivor’s father filed an FIR at the B-Divison police station near Essa Nagri. The suspects were arrested after their DNA reports confirmed the rape.

Two years later in 2021, Additional District and Sessions Judge Sajawal Khan awarded the death penalty to Javed, Shaimoon Masih and Haroon Masih and acquitted Younis by giving him the benefit of the doubt.
