He has asked the court to pardon him
A 21-year-old man accused of raping and murdering a nine-year-old girl in Nowshera has confessed to the crime.
When he was presented by the police before an anti-terrorism court in Mardan on Friday, Yasir admitted to raping the girl and then killing her by hitting her on the head and back with a rock to conceal his crime.
He has asked the court to pardon him.
On January 1, the Mardan DIG held a press conference where he said Yasir was a friend of the victim’s father. He lured her to his house on December 27 on the pretense of giving her clothes.
Her body was found in a graveyard in the Kalan area on December 28. She went missing after she left her house for a class at a seminary in Nawan Kalay.
