KASUR: The wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, Reham Khan, said on Thursday there was no need for an inquiry in regards to the Kasur child abuse case, adding that people just wanted expeditious justice.

“If the government does not want to resolve an issue, they initiate an inquiry into it,” remarked Reham, adding that “there is no need for further evidence when hundreds of witnesses have come forward and 400 videos exist of the abuse.”

“Those sitting in parliament have done nothing; have they made any laws to protect children? They enjoy all the perks of a public office but do not work for a single day,” said Reham.

Reham was speaking at Kasur’s Husain Khanwala area, where she reached earlier today to meet families and victims of the child molestation scandals.

“We would also bring in a team of psychologists to help children and parents who suffered this horrible ordeal,” said Reham, while addressing those affected by the tragedy.

“This child abuse scandal is extremely shameful, and it is the need of the hour to punish those responsible without delay.”

Reham urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to follow through on his promise to deliver exemplary punishment to the culprits.

She also said child abuse is not only limited to Kasur, and concrete steps need to be taken to rid Pakistan of this ill.
