Eight people detained
A 12-year-old was reportedly murdered after rape in Ghizer Valley’s Chatorkhand, the police have said.
Her body was found in a pile of garbage three days ago and the body was sent for its postmortem examination. The examination confirmed the rape. Her family members had, however, said that she died of suicide.
Gilgit-Baltistan CM Khalid Khursheed has taken notice and ordered the
SSP to arrest the culprits as soon as possible.
On Saturday, Ghizer SSP said the prime suspect has been arrested. “He was a relative of the 12-year-old.”
The police’s suspicions of him rose when he refused to give his DNA samples. “He confessed to the crime during questioning,” the SSP added.
