A man was arrested for raping and then murdering an eight-year-old girl in Mardan’s Sheikh Maltoon Town on Saturday, the police said.
The man worked for the victim’s father. “He put her body in a sack and then threw it in a storm water drain near her house,” DPO Sajjad Khan revealed in a press conference.
“The post-mortem report revealed that the victim had been raped,” he said. The suspect admitted to his crime in police custody and said he was ashamed of what he did.
A joint investigation team had been formed to investigate the case, the police added.
