A teenage girl dug herself out of shallow grave after she was raped by two men and buried alive.
The 13-year-old was snatched while walking to Koran lessons from her local village in Punjab and raped by the men in an isolated area.
Her attackers then buried her alive when they thought that she had died during the assault.
But she regained consciousness and managed to dig her way out of the muddy grave and flag down a passerby.
She was taken to a medical centre and survived her horrific ordeal.
According to the New York Post, her father Siddique Mughal told local police that his daughter had been taken.
But they initially refused to investigate the incident.
But they were ordered to arrest the girl’s alleged attackers by the Lahore High Court Chief Justice’s Complaint Cell.
