A 10-year-old boy’s body was found in Faisalabad on Sunday a day after he was abducted.
His neighbour has confessed to raping and murdering him, according to the police.
The incident occurred in the Ghulamabad area. “One of two suspects arrested has confessed to the crime during interrogation,” SSP Tanvir Malik told the media.
“He had even helped the family members look for the child,” the policeman said.
The neighbour is a 19 year old man. He strangled the child after raping him, according to the police.
His body was found in a nearby field and bore torture marks. He went missing on Saturday after he went out to play with friends.
The police have sent the body for a post-mortem examination. The child was the youngest of four siblings.
