CHUNIAN: A group of men coerced and allegedly raped a minor boy here in the Kasur district, police confirmed on Tuesday, adding that a medical report confirmed that the sexual assault took place.

The three alleged rapists — who subjected the 12-year-old to sexual abuse in a plant nursery in Nainwal — were yet to be caught, police noted. When the boy had cried out for help, some locals rushed to the scene but the suspects had fled by that time.

Police further said they were carrying out raids to search for and arrest the three suspects, two of whom had been identified.
