On November 23, 2010, Shamshad had engaged in a gang rape with four of his associates. They had abducted a 30-year-old woman and raped her in a running vehicle. But Shamshad and his gang were arrested within two weeks of the happening. The woman’s friend who had escaped the abduction led to their arrest. On December 6, 2010, all five men were under police custody. The court had ordered a sentence of life imprisonment for the five men.
