Slavery or Death: Rape Victim Gets Sentenced

The Express Tribune reports today that a Pakistani teen was sentenced to death by stoning or be sold off as a slave following her rape. According to the report, the girl claimed that she and her family were asleep at their home on Friday night when Khaleel Ahmed sneaked inside and raped her at gunpoint. Since the man was armed, she could not call out for help.

Four men, including the father of the alleged rapist, forced the unofficial court to pronounce the teenager a Kari (an adulteress) on Thursday. The girl’s father was forced to accept the decision. The girl somehow escaped and fled to her uncle’s home who then took her to a police station to register a complaint. The four men went into hiding and are now sought by police.
