LAHORE - The police are yet to make any breakthrough in the rape case of five-year-old girl, as the polygraph tests of two suspects failed to determine their involvement in the incident, police sources said on Tuesday.
Police said that the investigators carried out the polygraph examination of Zafar Iqbal, alias Malshia and Amir Shahzad for the third time on Tuesday. “The police are yet to establish their involvement in the heinous crime despite the third (polygraph) test,” a police investigator said on the condition of anonymity. The official said that the case was getting more complicated rejecting the earlier reports that the suspects confessed their involvement in the crime. Police sources said that the investigators also released seven other persons after interrogation in connection with the assault on the five-year-old girl of Mughalpura. The youngest of nine siblings was found in the parking lot of the Sir Ganga Ram hospital on September 13.
