Muhammad Boota, a labourer, worked on the land of two people, Mara Jat and Zaheer Jat. He made a deal with the landlords that he would harvest their crops against a mutually agreed payment.

Mara Jat and Zaheer Jat have been arrested, while six other accused are absconding.
Police have registered a case against the accused, and ordered medical examination of the girls.
