Karachi: Teenager found slaughtered at home
KARACHI: A teenager was killed in his house in mysterious circumstances on Thursday, police said.
They said assailants apparently sneaked into the house within the remit of the Bilal Colony police station in Sector 5-M, New Karachi, and slaughtered 17-year-old Ehtesham Israr.
The television in the room, where he was killed, was on while his other family members were also present in the house, they added.
The police said that the assailants escaped from the house after committing the murder. They said that the victim’s younger brother raised a hue and cry when he found Ehtesham slaughtered.
The police said that there was no evidence of anyone’s forced entry into the house. They said the murder weapon was also missing and it seemed that the killers had taken it away with them.
The area SHO said he suspected that either someone from within the family had killed the youth or someone known to them was involved in the killing.
“The family is not sharing much information with the police,” the SHO said, adding that the family would be grilled after the victim’s funeral.
The police said the victim was a first year (Class XI) student and among four brothers and sisters.
The body was handed over to the family after medico-legal formalities at the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, they said.
