AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(Lieven Lietaer & Marc Okrand, 10/29/2015):

LL: So how do I say "staple the sheets"?
MO: To "staple" papers together is to {rar} them. To use a
     stapler or hole punch ("perforator, hole punch" {nIqDob}),
     you {qIp} it or {'uy} it or {ngaH} ("squeeze") it, depending
     on the device. [...] The hole punch will {ghID} ("pierce,
     perforate") the paper (or other material). 
LL: Can {ghID} also mean perforate a paper with a tooth pick
     or similar?
MO: Yes, of course.

DuQ 		stab, pierce (PB)
