I told them that after crossing the toll plaza and coming towards Sialkot, there was a man who was abusing a woman. The way the man was beating her I couldn’t tell if they were related or not, so I informed the police to get there quickly and help her. He added that they were two people, one man grabbed the woman and pulled her back and another man was standing towards the back of the car.
Eyewitness Khalid Masood said that the Sialkot Motorway is fine during the day and the road it passes through at night is completely deserted.

I kept getting calls from Executive Number Five Daska till I landed at Sialkot.
The eyewitness further said that when I woke up in the morning, I saw in the news that this incident had taken place. When I saw it in the morning, I was very sad. It will be difficult for me to recognize them.

Two men smashed a car window on the motorway, dragged the woman and her children out, took them to nearby bushes and allegedly raped the woman in front of her children.
A woman from Gujranwala was on her way to Gujranwala from Lahore. The car stopped on the motorway due to running out of petrol and was waiting for her husband. The first lady called one of her relatives, who called the motorway police.
The woman received a reply on the motorway helpline that no one has been allotted the Gujratpura belt yet, so the motorway police did not help. The woman was raped by two men before her relatives arrived. The accused also took Rs.100,000 worth of cash, gold jewelry and ATM cards from the woman.
