- Body of a boy found in a ruined house in Sindh province, Pakistan
- Barber’s murder, strangulation of a child
- Guru Nanak Jayanti celebrations on Friday
“The whole family was mired in preparation for the Guru Nanak Janmajayanti program. So none of us have noticed that the child is missing. His body was found in the house around 11 pm, ”said a relative of the boy, Raj Kumar. Born in 2011, he was studying fifth grade. He said the panic spread across the entire region after this horrific incident.
The boy was strangled to death. He had been sexually harassed before, the station house officer said. The two have been arrested. One of them stated that the accused has pleaded guilty.
There are also marks of torture on the boy’s body. This is the second such case in the region in the past few weeks, said Zubair Maher of the Child Protection Authority. A few days ago a girl from a Hindu community went missing from Saleh Path province in Sukkur district. The police had announced a reward of Rs 25 lakh for her arrest. But it did not bear fruit, Maher said.
Many incidents of atrocities are being reported on Hindus and other minorities in Pakistan.
