Karachi: Teenager tortured to death
KARACHI: Two people, including a teenage boy, were killed in separate incidents in the city on Monday. The body of 13-year-old Uzair Baloch, with marks of torture on it, was found in the bush opposite the Qasim Ali Shah shrine in Mawach Goth.
Police said some unidentified criminals had kidnapped the boy from an unknown place, tortured him, hanged him to death and then dumped his body in the area. They said Uzair’s family hailed from Balochistan and he had been living with his mother and an uncle in Mawach Goth since his father died a few years ago.
He had gone out on Sunday evening, telling his family that he had to buy a few things but did not return.
