The Financial Daily - - CONTINUATIONS -

ISLAMABAD: The fam­i­lies of the rape vic­tim chil­dren in Ka­sur pornog­ra­phy scan­dal were forced to with­draw their cases by the in­flu­en­tial ac­cused, re­vealed the Fed­eral Om­buds­man's re­port on Tues­day.

The doc­u­ment high­lighted the au­thor­i­ties' fail­ure in con­trol­ling such in­ci­dents and trac­ing cul­prits of mafia in­volved in child pornog­ra­phy.

The re­search re­port that has been sub­mit­ted in the Pres­i­dency fur­ther says, the chil­dren who were phys­i­cally abused be­long to the re­mote ar­eas, while the ac­cused, named in the scan­dal were in­flu­en­tial.

"Only few ac­cused were sen­tenced in more than 272 reg­is­tered cases of the child abuse in Ka­sur," the re­port says and adds that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion was put on the back-burner by the in­flu­en­tial by pay­ing bribe to the po­lice.

A cen­tre was es­tab­lished in Ka­sur to find out the root-cause be­hind the alarm­ing in­crease in the child abuse in­ci­dent in the re­gion, the re­port reads.
