Karachi: Man held for chopping off 2 women
KARACHI: Police on Tuesday claimed to have arrested a man for allegedly killing at least two women, chopping off their body parts and dumping them at different places. The body parts of at least two women were found in different places in March and earlier this month. DSP Qaiser Ali Shah said the suspect, Muhammad Rafiq Soomro, was arrested in Patel Para.
He said the held suspect and his friend Iqbal were rickshaw drivers and were involved in chopping off the bodies of two women during the last two months. They threw away the body parts of the victims within the remit of the Soldier Bazaar and Jamshed Quarters police stations, he added. The recovery of all parts of a body took three days.
The police said the suspect allegedly killed a woman, Nasreen, and started using her cellphone. The police traced the location and carried out a raid and arrested the suspect. However, his accomplice was not present at the time of the raid.
The DSP said the held suspect disclosed to the police that he and his accomplice killed those women since they did not like “their profession”.
The police said Rafiq originally hailed from Sukkur and was a father of two. He appeared to be a psychopath, they added.
