Sahiwal: Child’s killer gets bail
SAHIWAL: The self-acclaimed spiritual healer, who killed a 12–year–old girl at Chak 114/12-L, on Saturday got interim bail. Pir Shaukat of 21/14-L was nominated in murder FIR (114/12) and the Kasowal police raided various places to arrest him after he tortured Manzoor’s daughter Salma Bibi to death on the pretext of ridding her of evil spirits. Steeped in ignorance, the girl’s parents witnessed the tragedy and defended Shaukat’s brutality because of their blind belief in the occult. The Chichawatni THQ Hospital confirmed torture and the autopsy report revealed the girl had died due to “broken neck”. Additional District and Sessions Judge Shakir granted bail to the accused.
