Ex-superintendent of women shelter home approaches LHC over sexual abuse allegation
LAHORE: Former superintendent of Kashana Centre, Darul Aman, Afshan Latif on Tuesday filed a plea in the Lahore High Court (LHC) alleging that the women shelter home in Lahore was being used to supply girls to powerful people in the Punjab government.
Earlier in a series of videos, Afshan Latif had accused the provincial government minister of threatening her for revealing the story.
The superintendent of Kashana Centre had written a complaint to the Punjab chief minister. She had alleged that funds for the shelter home had been stopped after she resisted to forced marriages of the girls of Darul Aman.
“The girls are misused in the name of providing bread and clothes to them,” she had said.
Former provincial minister of social welfare Ajmal Cheema has said that the allegations against the ministers were baseless.
Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has directed for an inquiry into the matter.
