Sexual Abuse Case : Mufti Aziz-ur-Rehman arrested in Mianwali

Mufti Azizur Rehman, who was charged with sexually abusing a madrassa student, has been arrested in Punjab’s Mianwali, a police spokesperson said Sunday.

A Punjab police spokesperson told news channel that Aziz’s two sons were also arrested in two separate raids in Lakki Marwat and Kahna.

They are likely to be produced before the court on Monday.

“We have been able to arrest this criminal,” Punjab IG Inam Ghani said in a Twitter post. “We will take it as a test case, interrogate him, conduct scientific professional investigation, prosecute and get him convicted by the court.”

The cleric was charged on June 16 after videos purporting to show him forcing himself on the student went viral on social media.
