KABUL: (Middle East Press) A group of 6 members of the Afghan Local Police (ALP) have raped a 12-year-old girl in eastern Kapisa province.
The incident took place around 11 days ago in Nijrab district where the child was gang-raped and abandoned in a critical condition on the roadside.
The family of the victim has moved to Kabul and referred their concern to the Afghan parliament in a bid to receive help and to punish the perpetrators.
This was the fourth rape case recorded during the past one month in the country.
A 5-year-old girl was raped in northern Balkh province of Afghanistan earlier this month, while another girl was gang-raped by security guards in Herat hospital around two weeks ago.
Another 4-year-old girl was also gang-raped two weeks ago by a group of armed men in Lashkargah city of Helmand province.
The sexual abuse and rape of children have been rampant in Afghanistan, especially during the recent months.
