Murders mystery resolved in Lahore
LAHORE: Investigations Police on Wednesday claimed to have resolved a double-murder mystery by arresting six killers who mercilessly slaughtered a man and a woman and fled away after throwing their bodies in the BRB Canal.
DIG Investigations Malik Ali Amir told reporters on Wednesday that six accused identified as Munawar Hussain, Hussain Ali, and Abdul Khaliq along with their three other accomplices had kidnapped one Hamayoun and his female friend from Nishtar Colony area. Later, the kidnappers brutally murdered the ‘couple,’ cut their bodies into pieces and escaped after throwing the bodies, packed in a sack, in the canal. The Nishtar Colony police registered a case (FIR No 42/12) in this regard. The DIG Investigations constituted a special police team, which arrested the killers and also recovered killing-weapons from their possession. During preliminary investigations, the killers confessed to the police that they killed the couple in the name of honour.
