Karachi: Six, including four friends found dead
KARACHI: Six bodies, including those of four friends, were recovered Sunday from separate parts of the city. The Korangi Industrial Area (KIA) police found four bodies, along with two motorcycles (KBN-0206 and KBN-1299), in different places of the area.
“The deceased were Pathan, aged between 20 to 25. The four were friends and lived in Muzaffarabad Colony, Landhi,” said Station House Officer (SHO) Mukhtar Khaskheli. According to their families, they left the area for some work at around 9:00 p.m. Saturday.
“One of the men, Saeed, was a criminal. He had snatched a motorcycle (KBN-1299) on January 26 from Mohammad Shafiq, a resident of the same area. It is possible that the other three were also involved in street crimes and were killed over the distribution of looted money,” said Khaskheli, adding that the deceased were shot dead after severe torture.
The first two bodies, of Mohammad Saeed and Asif Iqbal, were found at around 1:30 a.m. on Dar-ul-Uloom Road, Sector 36-B, Korangi, while the bodies, of Zakir Hussain and Malik Jan, were found near the Korangi Degree College at around 730 a.m. The bodies were taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center, where their families identified them. A First Information Report (FIR), number 7508, was registered for Saeed and Asif’s murders. The FIR was registered on behalf of Sub-Inspector (SI) Abdul Rasheed against unidentified persons. A second FIR, number 7708, was registered on behalf of Bahadur Khan, the father of Zakir Hussain, against unidentified persons.
Jobless man killed by Arshad Pappu’s associate The body of 21-year-old Babar Rehman was found near Maulvi Usman Park, Gul Mohammadi Lane, within the jurisdiction of Chakiwara Police Station.
According to SHO Abid Tanoli, the deceased was a resident of Shah Baig Lane and was unemployed. He left his house on Saturday night to attend a wedding ceremony and, on his way back he was kidnapped by Sattar Pera, the chief of a sub-group of Arshad Pappu.
The deceased’s family received a phone call from Sattar Pera, informing them that Babar was murdered because the kidnappers had found the phone numbers of Jabbar Jhengu, the chief of a sub-group of Rehman Dakait, in his mobile phone. The killers told Babar’s family to pick up his body from the park within ten minutes, threatening to burn the body on delay.
“Babar lived in Shah Baig Lane, where most of the Jhengu group resides, and, therefore, having Jhengu’s mobile phone number does not necessarily mean that he belonged to his group. We do not have any criminal record of the deceased,” said Tanoli.
The SHO said that a case has been registered and further investigation is in progress.

According to on-duty policeman Daniyal Adil, the body was shifted to Civil Hospital Karachi for autopsy and later to the Edhi morgue. Adil said that the deceased was kidnapped and murdered after being violently tortured.
