A woman in Pakistan's Punjab province was allegedly sold for rupees 5,000 by her husband to four persons who gang-raped her for 21 days.

The incident took place in North Sargodha, some 200 kilometres from Lahore.

The suspects took her to their place and gang-raped her for 21 days before she managed to flee and reached the local police station.

The woman on Wednesday submitted an application in the sessions court Sargodha after police refused to file a case against her husband and four rapists.

Additional sessions judge Muhammad Ijaz issued a notice to district police officer Sargodha and sought a report on the matter on November 2.

A number of gang rape incidents have been reported in Punjab province recently.
