The woman was travelling from Lahore to Gujranwala along with her children.

A police official stated that as the woman crossed the toll plaza on the Lahore-Sialkot motorway, her car stalled either due to shortage of petrol or some fault.

Meanwhile, she got a call from a relative of Gujranwala, who asked her to call the police helpline for help while he also left from home to reach her.

When he reached the location, he found the woman terrified with her clothes stained with blood.

The police official stated that two armed men found the woman alone, took her and her children to a nearby field at gunpoint and gang-raped her.

He said the police had formed teams to trace the culprits.

He said the woman had yet to call the helpline when the armed men reached there. They also took away cash, jewellery and other valuables from her.

The woman is said to be a resident of the Defence Housing Authority and her husband worked abroad, the police officer said, adding a case had been registered against the two unidentified robbers on the complaint of her relative.

Cheema said in a tweet today that Punjab Police and related departments were “working in close coordination to capture those involved in [the] painful motorway incident”.

“So far 12 suspects have been arrested and search is going on,” she said.

Senate human rights panel also took notice of the matter and summoned the IGP of motorways police to brief members on the incident. The motorways police chief will also be required to tell the committee why distress calls by the victim were not answered.
