The men who raped a woman earlier this month at the Gojra motorway are threatening her, according to a statement she gave to the police on Tuesday.

The woman said the men who raped her are influential and warned her of dire consequences, according to the report in Geo.

She was frightened for her life.

The 18-year-old woman was lured into a meeting on the pretext of a job offer made to her by a woman on the phone. When she went to the site on Oct 11, she was taken in the car and, she claims, raped by two men who later left her on the Faisalabad interchange of the motorway.

Her aunt subsequently filed a report with the police.

They arrested two men, including the prime suspect they said, and recovered a rental vehicle which was used.

The Gojra police initially said they were struggling to get the woman to record her statement but on Tuesday they succeeded.

In the statement, the rape survivor she was unhappy with the local police attitude.

For its part, Toba Tek Singh DPO Najeeb-ur-Rehman was quoted in Geo as saying their investigation showed the woman and prime suspect were in touch before the rape. "This wasn't a sudden incident. They already had contact," he said, adding that the case is being investigated from all angles.
