Punjab Forensic Authority matches possible rapist’s DNA in Lahore Motorway rape case

Fifty-three DNA samples were taken after a woman was raped in front of her children on the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway late Wednesday. One of the samples taken from the crime scene has matched with DNA already in the Punjab Forensic Authority’s database. The match is of a 25-year-old man who raped a mother and daughter in 2013, according to police sources.

The match is a resident of Bahawalnagar. His DNA was at three spots at the crime scene– the victim’s clothes, the smashed car window and inside the car itself.

The police currently has 15 people in custody. Another 25 suspects who already have records have locked their homes and fled.
