A suspect in the Lahore motorway rape case surrendered to the CIA Model Town police on Sunday.

The suspect has denied any involvement in the rape of a mother in front of her children on Wednesday night and said he wasn’t even in the area.

The woman was raped in front of her children by two unidentified men on the motorway. She was driving to Gujranwala when she ran out of fuel near Lahore’s Gujjarpura. The woman was sitting in her vehicle when two men walked towards her car, broke her window, and made her park on the roadside. They then took her and the children to a nearby forest and raped her.

The men fled after the rape, taking with them three ATM cards, 100,000 in cash and jewellery.

The police have collected 53 DNA samples from residents of nearby villages and sent them to the PFA for testing. They said it would take 10 days for the results but the Authority also ran the DNA samples found at the crime scene through its system and got a match.

The match is of a 25-year-old man who raped a mother and daughter in 2013, according to police sources. He is a resident of Bahawalnagar. He is DNA was at three spots at the crime scene– the victim’s clothes, the smashed car window and inside the car itself.

The 36-year-old surrendered after his CNIC card and picture were flashed across multiple television channels.  

He arrived at the police station with a relative at 11am on Sunday and surrendered before duty SP Hasnain.

Police sources say that the man has denied being near the crime scene at the time of the rape. The police are now interrogating him and will investigate further.

He has a criminal background and was released from jail two weeks ago.

    Pakistani law enforcement has grown too incompetent that is why such immoral atrocities are becoming common place. A thief can rob a people at gunpoint and all he gets is a slap on the wrist because traumatized victims are too afraid of whether the thief is protected by influential mafia or politicians. People can’t raise their voice against (sindh) government officers for forcing a bribery culture because the government itself will move heaven and earth to hide their subordinates misdeeds and sweep such incidents under the rug. When does change come? people have grown jaded to all these vices and no longer care 30 years of government refusing to purge incompetent sindhi yes-men and new blood into the government offices based on merit. People can only be moved by the conviction and commitment of the government itself to purge dead weight from the government and bring efficiency to the bureaucracy.
