Islamabad—A sessions court in Islamabad charged a police official with sexually abusing his daughter, handing him a life sentence and fining Rs100,000 for the offence on Thursday.
Dilpazeer, a driver with the Islamabad police, is a resident of Khanna Dak, an area on the outskirts of Islamabad. He first assaulted his daughter in 2011 when she was a minor.
Now 19-years-old, the daughter said Dilpazeer continued to sexually abuse her for the next four years. She said she had told her mother when the abuse first raped her, but to no avail. She then turned to her uncle, Dilpazeer’s younger brother, “but nobody listened to me,” she added. The girl then approached the court and filed a case against her parent. Amir Nadeem Tabish, the plaintiff’s lawyer, submitted video evidence against the police officer in light of which the court sentenced Dilpazeer to life in prison.
