24NewsHD TV channel reported that Gujjarpura rape case suspect belonged to Bahawalnagar village 260HR and accused Abid Ali is being identified on social media and on various channels. 

The TV channel reported that 27-year-old Abid Ali son of Akbar Ali was named accused in another robbery-cum-rape case number 264/13 in Fort Abbas police station. Abid Ali was nominated in the FIR along with four others in the gang-rape incident during the robbery. The victim was gang-raped during the robbery in front of her father and mother.

Abid Ali had murdered his uncle allegedly in 2013 and then escaped from his hometown in a bid to escape the arrest, the TV channel reported.

Earlier in the day Punjab Inspector General of Police Inam Ghani refuted media reports and said no accused was arrested yet in the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway gang-rape incident. The Punjab’s top police official said the news on various television channels and social media platforms regarding the arrest of the main accused is false. 

Punjab government Spokesperson Musarrat Jamshed Cheema in a statement issued said the Punjab government will not leave any loophole behind while prosecuting the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway gang-rape incident.
