Some more points on #MotowayIncident that must be looked at in investigation. We need to clear the basics ,she was an educated n confident person who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.The misleading sleazy /twisted details like who filed the FIR etc need to be ignored. 1/8
Investigation also needs to look at the following points.Why the attackers were so confident that she was alone,her car was locked and noone was coming to help her?How come they were sure abt how much time they had. Roadside could be place for bulgary/dacoity, not always for rape
She reached the toll plaza and paid for the toll. Asked for the nearest petrol pump.Moved forward.The car stopped. She called the motorway helpline, they apologised but gave her the local number. The person on the number came on what's app and took her location. Told her to wait.
He also asked her how much petrol she needed in money? She told them Rs 1000.She then waited for more than 90 mnts. Around 2.30am, a truck started coming slowly towards the car.She had windows rolled up but she rolled them down a bit to see who was in the truck.The truck parked.
A man jumped out of the car and started looking at her car. He came near the car and started looking inside. Had a peek. She was trying to understand who he was. He almost encircled the car but from a distance waited and then turned back,got in the truck and left. It was 2.44am.
At 2.46 am that day, the attackers appeared. At 2.47am , her relatives were calling her but she could not answer as this was the time of the attack. One man broke his hand while smashing the window. They both were speaking Punjabi with each other and Urdu with her.
The ages were between 30 to 35 years. When the woman was found by the police and her car belongings were retrieved, eye witness says there was a note of "Rs 1000"on the dashboard and her card. It was left by the attackers as there was a smudge on the window and card of dirt too.
Apparently, the attackers had wished that she should go home and not tell anyone.But is this a coincidence that she had said that she wanted at least 1000 Rs petrol to reach home and the attackers knew it as well. One of them had gone back to place it as the bag was with them.
Injured his hand.

Some more details on the sad #motorwayincident .The woman called the emergency number #130 and spoke to them giving them her location. They gave her a local number where she was told to call for help.She called that number and gave them the location too. She ,them waited for help
She is, obviously too traumatised to recollect everything.Yet, she said it was a long wait. She is of the opinion that she waited for at least an hour. She also said her car has special type of windows. It was next to impossible for an outsider to tell she was alone in the car.
When the men appeared, they headed straight for her car. They were also carrying a gun. One of them carried her two year old as they dragged her along. She tried running away once and waved at a passerby car. She said she was sure the car had stopped and she was relieved.

Just had a very sad conversation of the victims in Lahore rape incident. The story is heartbreaking and gives goosebumps. @ImranKhanPTI and @UsmanAKBuzdar must show zero tolerance in this case. The educated girl has travelled on this route frequently in the past. 1/6
The woman was at family friend's home.They advised her repeatesky not to go at that hour but she had travelled this route regularly, finding it safe. What came as a surprise was the finishing of petrol. She immediately called the motorway police emergency line when car stopped2/6
The police took her location. She was aware of her situation, so she locked her windows and doors. Two men (demons) appeared out of nowhere and started threatening her, they had long sticks and heavy stones, she screamed but could not move her car, they smashed the car windows3/6

During my life in the UK, I enjoyed full freedom to act according to my religion and go to mosques and community centres. I was impressed by the government funded Islamic state school in London. While, working with Muslim Council of Britain, we conducted conferences. 1/6
There was a government funded helpline to solve problems and questions of Muslims based on religion. For instance, once I got a call from a girl who wanted to give her grandmother a Muslim burial but did not know how and the helpline helped her, active helpline was to support 2/6

At the cross roads of my life, at a sensitive time, I had found myself abandoned by a man with two little kids, the man refused to look after me or the children and decided to make his life elsewhere, in the same moment, another man, my father stood like a rock behind me, 1/10
Juggling between motherhood, womanhood and finishing studies and making a career was not an easy job. My father guardianed my two and a half months old as I travelled back to UK to finish off my studies. As I started my career in UK alongside my lil ones, the support came 2/10
Another man, head of our department at the University of Westminster, Alan Hiscok helped me by allowing my little one in the University as I studied, the librarian who would post the books to me so I don't have to travel with little kids3/10
