Dadu: Dead body of missing boy found
DADU: Dead body of a six-year-old boy who went missing earlier in the day was found in a gunny bag before the house of the boy’s uncles in Gulshan Shahbaz Colony in the evening on Monday.
Ms Irshad Khatoon lodged a complaint at Dadu town police station that her son Amir Malik had gone missing since 2pm.
She brought her son’s body to civil hospital where doctors carried out autopsy on the body.
Civil surgeon Dr Javaid Ahmed Dawachh told journalists that deep marks of rope were found round the body’s neck. The boy was probably strangulated to death with a rope, he said.
Ms Khatoon said that she suspected that her boy was kidnapped by her brothers Wajid, Zamir, Ghulam Mustafa and Guddu Khokhar and she had nominated them in the FIR but police did not move into action to recover her son nor did they arrested them before the boy’s body was found.
She said that her brothers were drug pushers and they had demanded money but she had refused to give them. Her son was strangulated to death after kidnapping and his dead body was thrown out, she said.
Two out of the four accused nominated in the FIR had been arrested, according to Dadu DPO Javaid Ahmed Jiskani.
He said that that the FIR had been lodged against Ghulam Mustafa, Wajid, Zamir, Guddu, and Noor Mohammad Khokhar, uncles of the boy, at 10:30 pm. Ghulam Mustafa and Wajid had been arrested and police were conducting raids to arrest the remaining accused, he said.
He confirmed that the arrested accused were drug addicts and they had confessed to killing the boy after the boy’s mother refused to give them money.
He said that he had formed a committee headed by SP investigation to arrest the remaining accused.
