Why do rapists barely get convicted in Pakistan?Abdul Gh Lone 16 September 2020 0 COMMENTS
Pakistani law stipulates punishment for rape. The problem comes with implementation. The conviction rate for rape in Pakistan is less than 5%, says Nadeem Malik, the host of SAMAA TV’s programme Nadeem Malik Live.
He spoke about the Lahore-Sialkot motorway rape case in Wednesday’s programme.
By law, the punishment for gang rape is the death penalty,

She explained that the biggest hurdle in the court room is
presenting evidence. Evidence is collected by the police and are police system
has too many loopholes, she said.
