Karachi:More body parts found but police still clueless about woman’s identity
KARACHI: Police on Wednesday recovered the head and torso of a woman from a garbage dump near Jamshed Road. Police have claimed that the head and torso belong to the same woman whose other body parts were found on the two previous days. Though the police has registered an FIR and directed all complaints of missing women to be sent to the concerned police station for identification, no headway has been made in the case.
On Monday, police officials found the feet and legs of a woman lying near a garbage dump. The very next day, the minced upper body parts of the same woman, packed into two gunny bags, was recovered near the Capri Cinema on MA Jinnah Road. Today, the police recovered the head and torso of the woman
On Wednesday morning, police were informed that the torso of woman was lying by a garbage dump on Jamshed Road. The police rushed to the spot, where they recovered the torso, head and veil of a woman. Police has claimed that the head and torso belong to the same woman whose other parts had been found on the two previous days. The police later shifted the body parts to Civil Hospital Karachi for further legal formalities.
Additional Inspector General (AIG) Karachi Akhtar Hassan Khan Gorchani has ordered DNA tests to be carried out on the recovered body parts. He has also sought a investigative report from the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) East Tahir Naveed and ordered a chemical exam to help in identifying the victim and arresting the culprits.
DIG East Range Tahir Naveed said that he had formed a probing team under the supervision of Sub–Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Jamshed Quarters Qasier Ali Shah.
Station House Officer (SHO) Hamayun Ahmed Khan informed The News that after recovering the remaining body parts on Wednesday, police called in the forensic experts to help in the investigation, and had also collected samples for a DNA test which has been sent to Islamabad for analysis.
When the body parts were first recovered on Monday, a message was aired on police control directing all complaints of missing women to be sent to the Jamshed Quarter police station for identification, said SHO Khan.
“Two families came to the police station on Wednesday. Unfortunately, both families were unable to indentify the body,” Khan explained.
SHO Khan added that after recovering the head and torso of the woman, he had asked the security staff and rickshaw drivers present around Mazar–i–Quaid if they could recognise the woman. However, none of them were able to do so.
Khan stated that the police was now developing video footage of the cameras installed around the Mazar–i-Quaid. He suspects that the woman may have been kidnapped near the Mazar–i–Quaid, as there had been an almost identical case last month in which the body parts of a woman were found over the course of three days. It was later found that the woman had been kidnapped near Mazar–i–Quaid.
SHO Khan claimed that once the video footage had been developed, they could confirm whether or not the woman had been abducted near Mazar–i–Quaid. The police have lodged an FIR under Section 174 of Criminal Procedure Code (Cr. PC) at the Jamshed Quarters police station.
