A local court on Saturday sent two suspects allegedly involved in raping a bus hostess in Vehari to jail on judicial remand, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Police produced the two suspects – guard Shiraz Ali and driver Asif – in court. The accused were arrested after sexually assaulting bus hostess Laiba Zahid in a moving bus heading from Mailsi to Sadiqabad.

The rape victim also appeared before the court along with her lawyer. 

Police station Daniwal requested the court that the two suspects have been investigated and are no more required by the police for further inquiry. The Senior Civil Judge sent both the arrested accused to jail. 

The victim’s lawyer pleaded with the court that Alia, the main accused in the case has not been arrested yet.  

Her lawyer alleged that the police have become complacent with the owners of the bus company and are not arresting the accused. 

It is pertinent to mention that in a heinous incident of sexual violence against women, a bus guard allegedly raped an 18-year-old bus hostess at gunpoint within the limits of the Daniwal suburb in Vehari district on Feb 4.

 Identified as Sheraz, the suspect locked the bus before abusing the vehicle's female staffer in connivance with the bus driver namely Asif. 

The incident took place in a moving bus while it was travelling from Mailsi to Vehari with no passengers in the vehicle. All the passengers departed from the bus at Mailsi when the bus took off from Sadiqabad.
