According to Incharge Paposh Nagar police kiosk Chaudhry Saeed, a gravedigger Nawaz came to him and informed that one Riaz, 29, used to sprinkle water on the graves but he had been defiling the corpses of women in the graveyard.
Consequently, a police party was secretly deputed to the Paposh Nagar graveyard on Saturday when the body of a woman was buried. As soon as the relatives left the graveyard, Riaz came to the grave and dug it up to commit his heinous act.

Later, Waseem pressurised him to commit the same act, which he did, and later kept committing this shocking act.
