SEHWAN: A lawsuit against a Sehwan judge has been filed for allegedly raping a woman in his chamber last week.
Judge Imtiaz Hussain Bhutto, the judicial magistrate for Sehwan, allegedly raped a woman, whom he had called to record her statement in her chamber.
As per details, the Sindh High Court had already suspended the judge after the allegations arose.
According to details, a missing persons case was filed when the woman left her home to marry her husband. The couple was arrested in Sehwan and brought before the judge.
The woman was being called by the judge to record her statement separately, where she said he raped her. The police registered a case against the judge one week after the incident.
They went to a women’s shelter to record the woman’s statement and have now initiated legal proceedings.
Dawn reported that according a medical report, “it cannot be verified” whether or not the woman was sexually assaulted. The report concluded that only a “chemical examination” will be able to prove the allegations of rape.
The FIR contains sections of rape and misusing public office for illegal means.
A district and sessions judge conducted an investigation into the matter and sent it to the chief justice of the Sindh High Court, after which Bhutto was suspended. In the court’s official notice it said he was dismissed for wrongdoing.
