KARACHI: Police on Tuesday arrested a man and exhumed the body of his nephew whom he had allegedly killed after learning that he was having an affair with his wife.
During the interrogation after his arrest, Noor Jaleel confessed to killing his 25-year-old nephew, Shah Nawaz, son of Ishaq, December 5, 2011, and then burying him in his factory quarters.
Acting on information he provided, the New Karachi Industrial Area police raided the factory and exhumed the body, which was taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for an autopsy.
According to the police, Jaleel was a watchman in the factory and lived in the quarters with his wife and nephew.
