Earlier in January, a 12-year-old child had been murdered brutally by his captors after they were denied the ransom amount and one of their accomplices was apprehended by police in Karachi.
The Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) of the Sindh police had recovered the body of the victim from Gulistan-e-Jauhar after the location was provided by the arrested abductors.
The police had claimed after the initial investigation that the child was abducted by his neighbour, Shamshir along with his brother-in-law and another accomplice for getting a hefty amount in ransom.
The captors had murdered the child after one of their accomplices was arrested in a bid to receive the ransom amount. “The child was murdered in Saeedabad and his body was thrown in a nullah in Gulistan-e-Jauhar area,” claimed AVCC SP Abdullah Ahmed. He had said that the accused also threw acid on the body to deface it.
