Abuse of women by the Faisalabad police
Date.21 Oct, 2015
Police brutality and torture are widespread in the Faisalabad District of Pakistan. Although most victims are men, the Faisalabad police have also tortured women. Male police officers have sexually assaulted women, ripped their clothes in public, and forced them to witness the torture of their family members. Taking advantage of women’s vulnerable position in society, police harassed female victims when their husbands were not home and brutally retaliated when the women protested the abuse.
