4-year-old Jannat Raped & Then Dumped Into An 80-Feet Deep Well In Mansehra Pakistan.

There’s no safety, no refuge even for young children. In-fact, they are the most vulnerable and unsuspecting prey for the most vicious and vile sexual predators- men. This is exactly what happened to 4-year-old Jannat

When little Jannat went missing from her home in durband, Mansehra– her parents looked desperately for her everywhere but to no avail. She had been missing for 4 days now and her parents had lost all hope for her safe return. Until news of her being found came to them-unfortunately not all news is good news.

Tiny Jannat had been found but she was barely alive. After being abducted -from outside her home- a group of pedophiles, raped and then dumped her inside a barren 80-feet deep well, a few miles away from the village.

Jannat was a warrior who survived the soul-scarring incident at the hands of those barbaric men and somehow managed to regain consciousness inside the well. She kept crying and screaming for 4 days straight in the hope that someone would be able to save her from the hell that she had been thrown into.

Some locals heard her screaming for help and informed the authorities. Jannat was finally pulled out of the abandoned well but she was critical -hanging on for dear life. Shivering from the cold and starving from hunger she was taken to the nearest hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.

Her father, Mohammad Nazakat told the media that there were no proper facilities at King Abdullah Hospital (where his daughter was taken) which is why she could not get proper treatment. He also alleged that there were no doctors at the said local hospital when they took Jannat there and that the dispensers were unable to save her. The staff at the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital in Oghi did not help him either in regards to his daughters post mortem nor did the District Headquarters Hospital.

None of us can even begin to imagine what 4-year-old Jannat endured. At an age where she could not even in her wildest thoughts comprehend what was happening to her while it happened.


Hyderabad: Police confirms veterinarian’s rape and murder was pre-planned, release photo of main accused Md Pasha

The other suspects, Naveen from Gudigandla, cleaner Kesavulu, and an assistant named Siva, were also reportedly arrested. The Police are said to be interrogating them in an undisclosed location.

Hyberabad police have been relentlessly investigating the case wherein a 27-year-old veterinarian Dr Potula Priyanka Reddy was brutally raped, murdered and set ablaze in the outskirts of the city on Wednesday night. Four people have been reportedly arrested in connection with the case.

The Telangana police have now confirmed that Priyanka Reddy was kidnapped and gang-raped. Police confirmed that a lorry driver named Mohammad Pasha from Narayanpet in Mahababub Nagar district was allegedly the main suspect.

Another accused named Naveen from Gudigandla, cleaner Kesavulu, and an assistant named Siva, were also arrested. The Police are said to be interrogating them in an undisclosed location. They will be presented before the media by the police on Friday.

The burnt body of the veterinarian was found near an under the bridge of Chatanpally village near the Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Shamshabad on Thursday morning. It was said to be a pre-planned rape and murder and the accused were said to have kept watch on her movements as they had noticed her parking her scooter near the toll-plaza.

The tyre of the victim’s vehicle, which she had parked near the Tondupalli toll plaza, on Wednesday at 6 PM, 3 hours before she made that distress call to her sister when she returned from work, was deliberately deflated and she was unwittingly trapped by them, confirmed the Cyberabad police.

Under the supervision of V C Sajjanar, Police Commissioner, Cyberabad, Shamshabad DCP N Prakash Reddy formed a special team of 15 people to investigate the case. They had collected CCTV footage near the toll gate and the stretch between the Hyderabad-Bengaluru national highway. Two videos collected show Priyanka riding alone towards the toll gate, while in another she could be seen talking to an unidentified person.

Cyberabad police also recovered the victim’s inner clothes, footwear and a liquor bottle at some distance away from the toll plaza, where Priyanka Reddy had parked her two-wheeler. Her scooter was found 40 km away and her charred body about 25 km away from the spot of crime.

As per the post mortem reports, she was said to have been gang-raped, tortured, before they strangled and killed her in the empty land behind the Tondupally toll plaza at the Outer Ring Road at Shamshabad. They had taken the body and her two-wheeler in a lorry.

The suspects are said to have removed the number plates of the Priyanka’s bike and left it near the P Darga bus stand in Kothur Mandal in Rangareddy district. After that, they wrapped her body in a bedsheet, poured kerosene and burnt her. They left the body burning there and escaped. The forensic report is pending.

The culprits had taken Priyanka’s body to the Chatanpally under bridge near Shadnagar town. As per reports, knowing it as a desolate place, they had wrapped it in a bedsheet, poured kerosene and had left it burning.

The victim’s family members said the Priyanka reddy had reported for duty at her place of work in Kollur in Mahbubnagar district and returned to her residence in the afternoon. Around 5.30 pm, she left her residence on a two-wheeler for consulting a dermatologist at a private hospital at Gachibowli for a skin problem.

She parked her vehicle at Tondupally toll plaza at Outer Ring Road (ORR) in Shamshabad. From there, she took a shared cab to reach Gachibowli and met the skin specialist at the hospital.

When she reached her vehicle, two persons, who are believed to be truck drivers, told her that her tyre was flat.

Speaking on the phone, Priyanka urged her sister Bhavya to continue talking to her, as the situation was not fine and she was feeling scared. As soon as Priyanka went incommunicado abruptly, her family approached the Shamshabad police and a missing case was registered.

Reportedly, milk vendor S Sathyam found a charred body underneath an underpass of a flyover on NH-44 on Thursday morning. He immediately called village elders, who informed local police.

The Hyberabad police soon arrived and found that it was a murder. They later verified the recent missing complaints. On Wednesday night, the Shamshabad police had received a complaint of a veterinary doctor missing. When her family reached the spot where the fully charred body was found, they established its identity based on a scarf and a Ganesha locket around the victim’s neck. (Opindia)
