A seven-year-old boy was raped and killed by his relative in Karachi’s Korangi, according to the police.
The boy was kidnapped 20 days ago, after which his parents had lodged a missing persons complaint with the police. On Saturday, his body was found from the Korangi river.
“My son had gone to play in a playground near our house on July 13 but never came back home,” his father said. “On July 16, we had filed a complaint at the Korangi Industrial Area police station.”
The police have arrested one of the accused men, identified as Rizwan, who is a relative of the boy.
“Rizwan told us that he had taken the boy to the river where his friend Asghar raped and then strangled him to death,” a police officer said.
A case has been registered against the suspects and the police are on the lookout for Asghar.
