Pakistani teen digs herself out of grave after rapists bury her alive
A 13-year-old Pakistani girl was forced to dig herself out of her own grave after she was buried alive by her rapists.
The girl’s father, Siddique Mughal, said his child was abducted by two men while walking to Koran lessons in Punjab’s Toba Tek Singh district.
The attackers took the victim to an isolated area and raped her until she was limp and unable to move, PTI reports. Thinking they had killed her, the two men dropped her body into a shallow roadside grave and covered it up with dirt.
The young girl clawed through the mud and yelled at passers-by until someone took her to a nearby health clinic.
Her distraught dad then went to the police seeking justice for his daughter. But the cops initially refused to investigate, IB Times reports.

It wasn’t until the Lahore High Court Chief Justice got involved that police started looking into the dad’s allegations. The cops were instructed to arrest the rapists and submit a report to the court as soon as possible.
Talking about rape is still taboo in many rural areas in Pakistan. But activists there are working to bring the perpetrators of sexual violence to light.
Kainat Soomro was just 13 years old when she was allegedly gang raped by four men. Tribal elders labeled her a “black virgin” for having sex outside of marriage. Six years after the attack, she is still encouraging other victimized women to speak out.http://m.nydailynews.com/news/world/pakistani-teen-digs-grave-rapists-bury-alive-article-1.1500416
