KARACHI (92 News) - The police registered a case of the alleged gang-rape of a woman in Karachi-bound Zakariya Express on Monday.

The Railway SSP said that the medical examination of the victim had been conducted at Jinnah Hospital.

The victim told Railway City police that she had boarded the train from Multan for Karachi on May 27. She said that three people, including ticket-checker Zahid and Aaqib had raped her.

She said that she could not purchase a ticket from the station in a haste. "I got an economy class ticket. Later, the ticket checker asked me to come with him as he had arranged a berth for me in the AC compartment," she told police.

The incident occurred in the AC compartment between Rohari and Hyderabad. Raids are being conducted to arrest the accused.
