A five-year old Pakistani girl is in critical condition after being kidnapped and brutally defiled in the eastern city of Lahore, police say.

The girl was found outside a hospital at around 8pm on Friday, a day after she went missing from a low-income neighbourhood in the city, said Lahore police chief Chaudhry Shafiq.

“We suspect that unknown men kidnapped the girl and after raping her threw her outside the hospital,” Shafiq said.

He added that CCTV footage showed a security guard from Lahore’s Sir Ganga Ram hospital carrying the victim inside on his shoulder after he found her lying on the road in a critical condition. Doctors said the child was raped several times, according to Shafiq.

After receiving emergency care, she was transferred to the intensive care unit of nearby Services hospital.

Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Saturday summoned top police officials for an update on their investigation into the crime. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has ordered the police chief of Punjab province to inform the court about the progress of the investigation after hearing reports about the rape victim, senior police official Omar Virk told reporters.

Virk said that police had formed two investigation teams who were searching for the suspects.

Provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah told reporters Friday that those who raped the young girl will be found and punished. “Those who have done this are not humans but beasts and will be arrested and prosecuted under the law and given exemplary punishments,” Sanaullah told reporters.
