Police in Pakistan have arrested eight men on suspicion of marching a naked teenager through her village in revenge for her brother allegedly damaging their family "honour". According to officers in Dera Ismail Khan, in the northwestern Khyber Paktunkhwa province, the men assaulted and humiliated the year-old in retaliation for her brother having a romantic relationship with a girl from their family outside marriage three years earlier. The incident is believed to have occurred during the morning of 27 October when the girl was fetching water. She was set upon by the men, stripped naked and dragged along the ground before being made to walk around the village for an hour, police said. The case is one of a growing number to emerge in Pakistan where people use the female members of a family to inflict retribution on men. In July, an all-male village council near Multan in the neighbouring Punjab province sentenced a year-old girl to be raped after her brother allegedly carried out a sexual assault against another woman. She praised the police for taking action and arresting the men but warned that the girl will still face a lifetime of stigma. But Pakistan Today reported that the authorities were initially reluctant to investigate the case and only arrested the men after the girl made several trips to the police station. Following the death of social media star Qandeel Baloch in July last year, Pakistan has been gripped by a debate on the treatment of women in the country.

He said he was stressed out because at work in Dubai he was the only non-Pakistani. The man after being detained by the authorities revealed that he had been harassed by his Pakistani coworkers in Dubai who far outnumbered him as he was the only Indian there. He said he was mercilessly beaten by the Pakistanis and tortured to go back. In frustration, he had resigned and was returning to India. HT: Max Prosperi.
