A Transgender woman has brought charges up against a Chunian gang that she alleges raped her for three days. As evidence, the police have a video recorded by the men showing them raping and beating her.
The video had gone viral on social media in which she could be seen tied upside down from the ceiling and being beaten with sticks by the men. The woman could be seen crying and pleading with the men to stop.
Eight hours after hitting Pakistan media and 4 hours after we followed up: Local police suddenly recover from extreme amnesia and RE-Arrest one of the men. “Police arrest man who allegedly tortured Chunian transgender”

These people will not be arrested in the first place, even if they are, they will be honorably acquitted
Kidnapping of eunuch named Sohana in Chunian city Allahabad, brutal torture, gang rape for three days, police refuse to take action against the accused.
What kind of country is this? What kind of state is this? Is there any fear of God?

The victim filed a complaint with the City Police Station, saying that she had been asked to dance at a wedding. Once she arrived at the ‘wedding’ the men tied her up.
The trans woman said that officials at the City Police Station had thrown out the case after registering it initially upon their complaint.
A spokesperson for the District Police Officer (DPO) Office said that they had formed an inquiry committee on the trans woman’s request to further probe the matter.
