Child murder case takes new turn – 17 Jul 2022

LAHORE : The murder of an 11-year-old boy Kamran for taking food from the fridge without permission in the Defence Phase III locality took a new turn when investigation police arrested his father on Saturday.

Accused Irfan handed over his children, including his underage daughter, to his ‘spiritual guide’ prime suspect Abu-ul-Hassan as accused Hassan had told Irfan that his Pir (in DG Khan) wanted him to marry an underage girl.

Police officers believed the victim girl recovered from Abu-ul-Hassan custody was underage. The police are engaging doctors to ascertain her age. Irfan had gone into hiding and had not contacted police regarding the murder of his son so police had to become the complainant in the case. Police would book Irfan on child trafficking charges as he had sold his underage children for bonded labour and underage marriage.
