  1. You may file a police complaint against this offence.

    Section 338-A, of Pakistan Penal Code, provides:-
    338-A.
    Punishment for Isqat-i-haml:

    Whoever cause isqat-i-haml shall be liable to punishment as ta’zir-
    (a) with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years, if
    isqat-i-haml is caused with the consent of the woman; or
    (b) with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to ten years, if
    isqat-i-haml is caused without the consent of the woman:
    Provided that, if as a result of isqat-i-haml, any hurt is caused to woman or she dies, the
    convict shall also be liable to the punishment provided for such hurt or death as the case
    may be.
