LAHORE: Eleven days have passed since the motorway rape incident but 28 police teams comprising 112 personnel are still unable to arrest prime suspect Abid Ali who is still at large and has managed to escape from the authorities multiple times.
Police have conducted five raids so far in Lahore, Sheikhupura, Kasur, Sahiwal and Nankana Sahib to arrest the accused but he succeeded in fleeing every time after dodging police.
Police sources said that Abid Ali had also been to areas in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in past as he stayed in Jamshoro, Buner and Hangu. Police said that teams have been sent to Sindh and KP to arrest the criminal.
