7 years old boy sexually abused and killed in Gilgit city

by Noor

Gilgit, July 21: In a shocking incident the dead body of a seven year old boy was found dumped at a wood works factory, in Gilgit city. On medical examination it was found that the boy had been sexually abused multiple times, before being killed, reportedly by inserting cloth in his mouth. The boy was identified as Basharat.

The heinous crime did not trigger any visible protest in the city, except for some hollow consolatory remarks by officials and political leaders.

The incident has brought to surface the often unreported cases of sexual abuse of young boys in different parts of Gilgit – Baltistan. The mainstream media either censors or under reports news related to sexual abuse of boys in the region. A couple of years ago a young student of Aga Khan Higher Secondary School – Gilgit, Muslim Khan, had committed suicide by jumping in Hanisara (Gilgit river), when a gang of criminals had tried to sexually abuse him.

Incidents of sexual abuse occur on routine basis in all parts of Gilgit – Baltistan but no serious measures have been taken by any organization to in this regard.

  18. Highly condemnable act of sick -minded beasts. The perpetrators don’t deserve any mercy from the society at large; they need to be dealt with severely by the concerned authorities – publicly hanging could be an option, if allowed under laws of the land.

  19. local govt and NGO,s can play role to handlel such kind of cases. We should take these casses to upper levels and must creat a permnant solution.
    I think through social research we can handle and remove these issue. This is a big challenge of society specially city area socity.
