A man murdered his three-year-old son whose body was found near a river in Kasur’s Khaddian, the police said Saturday.
The police had started searching for the child after the three-year-old was reported missing from Barat Shah basti at the B Division police station some days ago.
A special team, led by City ASP Dr Abdul Khan, was made to search for him. The police expanded its search operation to announcements from mosques.
The law enforcers shared a picture of the child on social media too. A day later, the police received information about the child’s body near a river.
They arrested the boy’s father, Nadeem, on suspicion of murder. He later confessed to it.
