Shakila Bibi says the authorities refused to take her complaints seriously, and rather than protecting her 15-year-old son, they imprisoned him.
“I went to the police station to file a complaint,” she told Reuters, “but instead of registering a (report), they took my son into custody.”
Another mother, Rubina Bibi, said she was thrown out of the police station when she tried to file a report.
“My son is in the videos, he is a victim,” she said. “Our children were forced into this. They were humiliated. But the police are treating them like criminals.”
