A court in Pakistan has ruled that the test of virginity is illegal and unconstitutional.

The Lahore High Court has ruled that the trial is invalid for rape and sexual assault cases.

The judge directed the Pakistani government to take steps to ensure that the test is not further implemented.

Human rights activists have long called for an end to the virginity test, saying it has no scientific basis.
