He was beaten outside a mosque
A 17-year-old boy died on Friday after he was tortured outside a mosque during Taraweeh prayers in Abbottabad’s Bikot, the police said.
According to the investigating officer, the incident took place earlier this week. “After torturing the teenager, the suspects left him in a graveyard in the neighbourhood and fled,” he said.
The victim was rushed to the Muzaffarabad Hospital by the area residents. The teenager, however, succumbed to the injuries. His body has been handed over to heirs after a post-mortem examination.
The 17-year-old’s father told the police that the suspects were enemies of the family. An FIR has been registered at the Bikot police station and raids are being conducted to arrest the suspects.
