A court in Taxila sentenced a local leader of the PML-N to 20 years in prison and imposed a Rs100,000 fine for raping a 13-year-old girl three years ago.
Additional and Sessions Judge Taxila Malik Ahmed Arshad Mahmood also handed a three-year prison sentence to a doctor for her involvement in an abortion performed on the girl.
The local court acquitted two brothers of the prime convict for lack of evidence against them.

In 2015, the mother of the victim had lodged a case against the prime convict Ishfaq, his two brothers, and the doctor.
She had contended that the prime convict — who is a cousin of the victim’s father — and his two brothers raped her then 13-year-old daughter at gunpoint at his home.
