A man was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting his 10-year-old stepdaughter in Islamabad, Bari Imam, police said on Tuesday.
The survivor shared the incident with her mother after initially remaining quite as she felt humiliated.
Police filed a complaint after outrage by the girl’s mother and arrested Tariq.
SP City Amir Niazi said the suspect was arrested after a complaint was lodged.
“Further developments will be made as soon as the medical reports are in,” he added.
Tariq had married the girl’s mother six years ago.
