A man has been arrested in Bahawalpur’s Hasilpur for allegedly raping his seven-year-old niece.
The police have also lodged a case against him.
Samples have been sent for DNA analysis and further inquiries will be initiated once the results come back, say the police.

The Bahawalpur DPO said they formed a special team to arrest the suspect. We will complete all the legal procedures and DNA testing and then file a chalan against him, he said.
The child was taken to Bahawalpur’s Victoria Hospital for treatment
