ISLAMABAD: Unidentified persons slit the throat of a man and his two minor children in front of their house in the capital on 8 April 2024, police said.

The injured were residents of Ghori Town and identified as Sheron Masih, an accountant by profession, and his seven year-old son and a ten year-old daughter.

The police said some passersby spotted the injured with their slit throats and sitting in a car parked in front of their house and informed the police. The neighbors also shifted them to a hospital.

After getting information, the police reached the house and during search found a cutter from a car and suspected that it was used in the incident.

The police are waiting for permission of the doctors for recording their statements. It is yet to be cleared under which circumstances the incident took place.
