KARACHI: Member of Sindh Assembly Heer Soho speaks during the provincial assembly session in Karachi.

KARACHI, Aug 11: A resolution was submitted to the Sindh Assembly on Tuesday condemning the massive child abuse scandal involving hundreds of victims in the province’s Kasur district over the last decade.
The resolution, submitted by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) lawmakers Khairunisa Mughal during the assembly session chaired by Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani, calls for the trial of the culprits by a military court.
Investigations into the massive child sexual abuse scandal, termed the biggest in the country’s history, have revealed that around 400 videos were made of 280 minor victims of sexual abuse by the organised gang of over 25 criminals in Hussain Khanwala village of Kasur.
Several parents of victims were consistently blackmailed and coerced into paying hundreds of thousands of rupees with threats of releasing the videos in public.
The submission of the Sindh Assembly resolution today follows the passage of similar resolutions in the Senate and the National Assembly condemning the Kasur child abuse scandal and seeking the harshest possible punishments for the culprits.
On Monday, members of the lower house of the Parliament expressed solidarity with the victimised children and their parents and demanded legislation to thwart such heinous crimes from happening in the future.
