KARACHI: A 19-year-old girl was found dead on a street in Gulshan-i-Hadeed, officials said on Friday.
Police surgeon Dr Summaiya Syed said the body of a girl lying on the street in Gulshan-i-Hadeed was brought at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre at around 10.25pm on Thursday night where doctors confirmed her death.
She said that the body was kept in the morgue and a post-mortem examination was conducted in the morning of Friday.
“No marks of violence were seen on any part of the body,” said the police surgeon.“Swabs have been made. Visceral samples and blood has been collected for both toxicology and histopathology. Clothes have been sealed for chemical analysis too.”
The deceased’s uncle and other relatives, who came to the hospital, said that she had gone along with her sister to Thursday bazaar at around 2pm.
She was having an ice cream there when her elder sister returned home. Since then she has been missing and found from the street near an imambargah.
The family alleged that she was kidnapped and killed.
However, Malir SSP Irfan Bahadur said that she had gone to the imambargah along with her elder sister where she apparently suffered a heart attack.
She was taken to a nearby hospital in Gulshan-i-Hadeed where she was pronounced dead and later on, her body was taken to the JPMC for autopsy.
The police were investigating the case.
