Couple found murdered in Karachi
KARACHI: The bodies of a man and a woman were found at a desolate place near the Bavani Chali area on Monday, police said.
They said that some area residents informed the police about the bodies lying in the Khyber Mohallah near Bavani Chali within the remit of the SITE-A police station.
The police reached the scene and recovered the bodies.
The body of the man was cut up into three pieces and stuffed in a gunny bag, while the woman`s body was intact and wrapped in a bedspread, they added.
The victims seemed to be in their mid-twenties and from appearance looked like Pashtun from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the police said.
`So far they have not been identified, but circumstances suggest that it was some sort of honour killing,` said SSP West Asif Ajaz.
The police shifted the bodies to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico-legal formalities.
Hospital sources said that the two victims were strangled to death. The body of the man was cut up into pieces later.
They said that the couple had been killed around 24 hours before their bodies were found.
