A 10-year-old boy named Abdullah Sajid was brutally murdered inside a mosque washroom in Sector G-6/3, according to a police spokesperson. The victim was a student who went to the Bilal Mosque to memorize the Holy Quran. An FIR has been filed by the victim’s father, Sajid Khan, and the case has been handed over to the Homicide Investigation Unit (HIU).

According to Sajid Khan’s statement, he received a phone call informing him that his son had been transferred to the Polyclinic in critical condition. When he arrived at the hospital, he discovered that his son had passed away. The police stated that the victim’s throat had been cut with a sharp object, and bloodstains were discovered at the crime scene.

There are inconsistencies in the accounts given by individuals connected to the seminary and hospital personnel, according to investigators. Hospital workers claimed that the patient was already deceased upon arrival, whereas seminary members maintained that the victim was transported to the hospital in grave condition and still showing signs of life.

Hospital representatives declined to elaborate on the reason for death, although indications of physical assault were obvious on the victim’s corpse. Some suspects have been detained for questioning, and the HIU believes that those responsible for the horrible act will soon be arrested.
