ISLAMABAD: A mother along with her 14-year-old daughter was stripped naked in Pakistan's Mirwala town of Punjab by 14 people and both were thrashed in the presence of a large number of people.

The suspects got hold of 50-year-old Allah Wasai and her 14-year-old daughter Ashraf Mai when they came out of their home to go to their fields. The incident took place in Birwali village of Punjab's Mirwala town, the Dawn newspaper reported.

Police official Mahboob Tangwani said the main accused, Safdar, alleged that Allah Wasai's son Saddam Husain had an affair with his daughter. He and his 13 accomplices held the woman and her daughter at gunpoint, stripped them naked and thrashed them.

We wanted to teach the women a lesson for the wrongdoing of Allah Wasai's son, one of the accused Haji Afzal told the police.

A large number of people were there but none of them came forward to rescue the women from the assailants.

Later, a local resident Allah Ditta informed the police. A police team freed the women from the accused and gave them clothes. A case was registered against the 14 accused.
