Islamabad: A child sexual abuse has rocked Pakistan after 400 videos of more than 280 children being sexually abused in a village in the Punjab Province of Pakistan was discovered. The incident has demanded an enquiry into the incident.
According to reports, all the victims were under 14 and included a 6 year old boy and a 10 year old schoolgirl who were being molested by a 14-year-old boy.
It has been found that a gang of 25 young men allegedly videographed the incidents of abuse and then used the videos to harass the children and their families and extracted money from them.
The abuse allegedly came to the notice last week when the parents of the children clashed with police during a protest when they blamed the authorities for failing to prosecute the criminals.
Head of Pakistani Punjab's Child Protection Bureau, Saba Sadiq termed the incident as ‘the largest ever child abuse scandal in Pakistan’s history.’
