Pakistan Ulema Council (PUC) Chairman Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said that DNA tests could be taken as evidence in a rape case.
Ashrafi said Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) has taken his proposal regarding DNA test.
About Mansehra rape case, he said beasts are roaming free due to poor enforcement of of laws.
“If we penalize people, according as per the existing laws, many people could be saved from becoming the next victims,” he thought.
He appealed to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief Justice Tassaduq Jailani to consider victim of Mansehra assault as their own daughter and get her justice.
The PUC chief called for faultless punishment for rapists.
