The FIR said that the suspect, identified as Faizan Saeed, is a resident of Gujjar Khan. The suspect had asked the woman to come to the hospital where he allegedly took her to the x-ray room and raped her. 

“The suspect had blackmailed filmed videos of the victim and later started blackmailing her. Moreover, the hospital’s technician also assisted the suspect,” the report added.

The hospital authorities also provided the records of the woman’s arrival and departure to the police. They said that CCTV footage shows the victim entering the hospital with the main suspect at 3pm and both of them leaving the premises at around 3:32pm separately on August 12. 

The hospital administration is fully cooperating with the police, said the statement, urging everyone to avoid any speculations until the facts come to the fore. 

Moreover, the footage also shows the victim entering the room after the hospital employee gives her a signal. The woman stayed in the hospital for about 33 minutes.
