A case has been registered against the police team investigating the lynching of a teenager in Karachi’s Bahadurabad. 

They have been charged with extortion.

Rehan had gone to a house in the Kokan Housing Society on August 17 to collect money for slaughtering a cow. The house owners, however, accused him of robbery and beat him up. The 16-year-old boy succumbed to his wounds on the way to the hospital.

Videos of the lynching went viral on social media and people called for the culprits to be punished. The Bahadurabad police investigation team had gone to the house of one suspect identified as Daniyal to search for weapons. The video of the lynching showed Daniyal wielding a weapon.

But when the police went to his house, they seized the weapon and asked his family for a massive bribe. The family filed a complaint with the police, after which a case was lodged against the investigation team.

They have been summoned to the DIG’s office.

    The boy Rehan was a dacoit and several.cases of dacoity are pending in the police stations. so the poluce instead of investigating the criminal records of the killed boy saw a chance to fleece the landlod of the hoyse where Rehan has gone to rob.

    The residents of Kokan society have had many lootings and thefts in houses. Cctv footages were also there but the theives were never punished. After this case there is a hype in thefts but now people are afraid to come forward. It was clearly an accidental death not a murder.

    Owner of the house who killed rehan gave money to police to hide the case. Which itself is crime. Rehan was detained and torchured with the intention to end his life as we can see gun in their hand in video. Which is clear evidence
