On April 3, 2009 an inhuman incident happened in the Swat valley of Pakistan. A 17 year old girl Chand Bibi was whipped in public with 34 lashes for the crime yet to be confirmed. Interior Minster Rehman Malik condemned the incident and Pakistan Chief Justice asked for the complete inquiry report. According to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesperson Muslim Khan, the act is in accordance to Shariah, but he refused that the flogging happened in Swat. Few days have gone by and no report has come forward from any Government official. Chand Bibi has also denied that any such incident happened to her.
