DUBAI: Police in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, have arrested a pedophile on charges of raping a 13-year-old boy and filming the act.

According to Faisal Rana, Capital City Police Officer (CCPO), the man who was not identified, has confessed of raping at least 30 children in Pakistan. He is also suspected of filming them and uploading videos of minors on the ‘dark web’.

According to the police, the suspect was previously convicted of sexually assaulting minors in the UK was deported after he had served his prison sentence. The official added that the suspected had also been tried for the same crime in Italy and was deported from there as well, Dawn news reported.

The man was arrested after a first information report (FIR) was lodged on the complaint of a 13-year-old boy’s mother in the Rawalpindi’s Rawat police station. The complainant alleged that the suspect forcefully took her son to a house in Bahria Town, Rawalpindi where he drugged and raped the victim for four days. The man filmed the minor as well and threatened to release the video if the victim reported the crime, the FIR said.

In September this year, Police in Kasur district of Punjab also found bodies of three missing boys who were murdered after the alleged rape.

The incident happened in Kasur district located some 52km south of Lahore in Punjab province of Pakistan. The murders and rape of these children are an uneasy reminder of the horrific rape and murder of the six-year-old girl Zainab Ansari’s case, which leads to widespread outrage and protests across the country. Zainab’s body was found in a trash heap in Kasur in January 2018.

Following a spate of child kidnapping and rape reports, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan also directed the authorities last month to take stern action against those involved in the inhumane crimes.

He expressed shock over children’s rape and pornography scams surfacing in Punjab. He directed the Punjab Chief Minister and senior officials to engage religious scholars, school teachers, and parents and offer them proper training and awareness to save children from falling prey to criminals.

A report by the NGO Sahil had revealed earlier this year that reported cases of child abuse increased by 11 percent in the year 2018 compared to 2017, with more than 10 children suffering some form of abuse every day in Pakistan last year.

The report, titled ‘Cruel Numbers 2018’, had found that cases of child sexual abuse specifically witnessed a rise of a significant 33 percent when compared with the reported cases of 2017.
