MARDAN: Police reported on Saturday that two out of five suspects nominated in a sexual harassment case against a woman in Kharki village, Katlang tehsil, were arrested three days earlier.
The Kharki police officers stated that the affected woman, aged 27, had filed a FIR against the defendant, alleging that she was on her way home in the evening when five people forcefully took her to a deserted place and raped her.
The married woman alleged that when the lights of a moving car dropped on them, the accused ran from the scene.
Police officials said Mehran, Hazrat Ali and Talha were the nominated suspects, while the names of the other two were undisclosed.
However, if an identity parade was conducted, the witness said she could recognise them.
In order to apprehend the three criminals, the officials said they were raiding numerous hideouts.
