No headway in JPMC trainee-nurse rape case

“Neither do I know that I was raped by a doctor from Jinnah Hospital nor the doctor who allegedly raped me,” said the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) trainee nurse, while testifying before Karachi District and Sessions Judge South Abdul Razzaque on Tuesday. Talking to Daily Times after court proceedings, Deputy District Public Prosecutor Mohammad Kaleemullah said the judge has proceeded the case at his chamber on the request of the victim’s counsel. He informed that while replying to several queries, the nurse said she had gone to a flat located at Bazzarta Lines with a nurse named Sajjad Faima, where she was offered a soft drink. After consuming the drink, she fell unconscious and when she returned to her senses, she was in the hospital, he added. She has claimed that she was under police pressure when she gave the previous statement and refused to identify the alleged rapist Dr Jabar Memon, said Kaleemullah. She has also refused that she jumped from anywhere to save her life, he added. asghar azad (DT)
