Pakistani police say men attempted to rape anti-polio worker

MULTAN, Pakistan — Pakistani police say a group of men attempted to rape an anti-polio campaign worker in eastern Punjab province.

Wasim Gopang, police spokesman in Muzaffar Garh district, said Saturday the woman alleged that four men dragged her into a room, stripped her lower dress off, took pictures of her and attempted to rape her but her screaming attracted others and the suspects got away.

The Associated Press generally does not name people who say they are the victims of sexual assault.

The incident happened Friday when the woman was working in a home during the anti-polio drive.

Gopang said the men were later identified but were not detained. A local court granted them interim bail but investigators were trying to have their bails canceled.
