Two employees of Karachi restaurant arrested in food poisoning probe
KARACHI: The police on Wednesday arrested two employees of a Karachi eatery where last month two children died after consuming the suspected poisoned food of the restaurant.
According to police, both the employees have been booked in a case of “reason to murder” and “destroying evidence”.
Two kids, 18-month-old Ahmed and Muhammad, 5, breathed their last shortly after dining at the restaurant with their mother on November 10. The incident triggered a police investigation into a suspected case of death from food poisoning against a local restaurant in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority.
The post-mortem report of the bodies had also revealed that the two minors died owing to food poisoning.
Earlier in December, a medical report also confirmed that two minors died due to food poisoning after consumption of substandard food of the restaurant in question, investigative sources told ARY News.
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and Inspector General Sindh Police Kaleem Imam had taken a notice of the incident and had ordered a transparent inquiry.
