Suspects held over Paghman gang rape

By Zarghona Salehi

Police on Tuesday paraded three more suspects allegedly linked to a group that gang rapped four women and looted passengers last month in the Paghman district of central Kabul province.

The gang members in police uniform reportedly deprived passengers of their valuables and sexually abused four women. Three members of the gang have already been held in police custody.

Kabul police chief Gen. Zahir told a press conference the three more suspects were captured in southern Ghazni province when they were planning to escape to Iran.

The gang rape sent shock waves across the nation, with common people demanding exemplary punishment for those involved.
