Four booked over minor’s murder – 29 Mar 2023

Two women among those accused of killing 10-year-old domestic worker

A 10-year-old boy, hired as domestic help, was allegedly murdered on Tuesday. A resident of Chak 69 GG, Mohsin Ali, alleged before police that he requested the accused Shahnaz Bibi give employment to his ten-year-old son Asad Ali because of poor economic conditions and sickness. She employed the victim at a house belonging to Bilal and Shahan, residents of Gulberg A Block.

The complainant repeatedly tried to get in touch with Shahnaz to meet his son, but she refused, forcing him to go to to Gulberg A Block to meet the boy on Tuesday.

When the complainant arrived at the house, he found the accused attempting to torture the boy by tying him up with ropes and locking him in the toilet.

The victim had suffered significant injuries by the time his father unlocked the bathroom door.

He was rushed to the hospital where eventually succumbed to his injuries.

The complainant accused the suspects of killing the boy after torturing him and staging the crime scene to make it look like a suicide.

Gulbarg Police handed over the body to the heirs after a post-mortem examination and booked four persons.
