The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

KA­SUR: At least twenty four more vic­tims in the Ka­sur child abuse scan­dal have come for­ward as star­tling rev­e­la­tions con­tinue in the case.

The fam­i­lies of the abuse sur­vivors have even filed the cases and are ready to be com­plainants in the case. The fresh dis­cov­ery has in­ten­si­fied the case fur­ther and the fam­i­lies of the af­fected chil­dren have even pre­pared pe­ti­tions to file. The sur­vivors await jus­tice as seven ac­cuse have been re­manded in cus­tody af­ter be­ing ar­rested. On the other hand, Pak­istan Tehreek-i-In­saaf (PTI) chair­man Im­ran Khan's wife Re­ham Khan has said that Ka­sur in­ci­dent could have oc­curred in any city how­ever; the gov­ern­ment like Model Town in­ci­dent is also neg­li­gent in this mat­ter.

Talk­ing to media af­ter the cer­e­mony re­gard­ing street chil­dren, Re­ham Khan said that Ka­sur in­ci­dent is the fail­ure of the rulers as laws are present in the coun­try but are not be­ing im­ple­mented. She stated that NGOs can only work against such in­ci­dents but do not have the au­thor­ity to take ac­tion be­cause the right to con­duct op­er­a­tion re­serves with the gov­ern­ment.
