A woman health worker of the Rural Health Centre in Matrain in Pakistan was allegedly gang raped by the Union Council, his brother and two accomplices for refusing to perform an abortion on a woman, impregnated by one of them.

According to reports, the Council Nazim Malik Riaz Ahmed Arain, his brother Allah Nawaz and two accomplices Luddoo Dogar and Bashir Gujjar entered the health visitor’s residence, tied up the guard and her ten-year-old brother and sexually assaulted her.

"Allah Nawaz, along with his two accomplices Luddoo Dogar and Bashir Gujjar, entered the health visitor’s residence on Wednesday, tied up the guard and her brother Saqlain (10), and sexually assaulted her," the Daily Times quoted DPO, Arif Zaman as saying.

"We have registered a case and arrested all four rapists," he said.

The woman said that Allah Nawaz brought a pregnant woman to the Health Centre six months ago for an abortion and said that she was his lover, and he wanted to get rid of the baby.

"I refused to perform the procedure, upon which he left after threatening me with dire consequences," she said.
