The Supreme Court of Pakistan will take up the Muzaffargarh rape/self-immolation cases today (Monday). A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan, Tassaduq Hussain Jilani will hear the suo moto case. Earlier, the CJP had tasked the Advocate General and Inspector General of Police (IGP) Punjab with a detailed report into the rape of a young girl, who, as a protest against police, burnt herself of death for being denied justice by way of due process. On January 5, five men kidnapped the college student, 17, at gunpoint and ravished her. Amina, the gang-rape victim died on Friday after setting herself on fire after a police report that led to the release of a key suspect. She doused herself with petrol and then set it alight on Thursday outside a police station near the city of Muzaffargarh, in eastern province of Punjab. She was under treatment but succumbed to her wounds on Friday morning. The CJP had taken a suo moto notice of this outrageous incident to the effect that he ordered immediate re-investigation into the heinous crime that led to Amina’s eventual self-immolation. Moreover, the suo moto cases pertaining to the deaths of children in drought-stricken Thar and the terrorist attack on Islamabad Sector F-8 Session Courts complex will also be taken up by the apex court today.
