Rawalpindi: Police still clueless in murder case
RAWALPINDI: RA Bazaar police have not yet found any clue to the murder of five members of a family, including two children, whom the unidentified killers hammered to death on Sunday night. Police officials told Daily Times on Tuesday that the District Headquarters Hospital had given the police investigators autopsy report of the deceased.
Jamshed Khan, his wife Tahira Jabeen, her children from first marriage – Shakir (11), Rimsha (9) – and her brother Abid Hussain (23) were the five who were killed in cold blood. The officials said that Jabeen’s first husband Zulfiqar would be called for questioning if he was alive, as there were reports that he was dead. They said fingerprints from the hammer had been taken. They said the RA Bazaar police had not reached any conclusion and the incident would probably be declared ‘blind murder’. They said Khan’s brother had not nominated anyone as potential killer in the first information report (FIR).
The investigation officer said the autopsy report had confirmed that the family members were killed by hammer strikes on their heads. He said the report would soon be sent to laboratory to determine whether or not the deceased were drugged before being killed. He said it had been reported that Jabeen’s first husband had died before the incident, but he had not, he would be called for investigation. He said it was premature to say that the “Hathora Group” had resurfaced as the investigation was underway.
