Minor tortured to death over trifle

1 min read

SAHIWAL: A nine-year-old child was tortured to death by his neighbours over a minor dispute at Chak 40/12-L, Chichawatni tehsil.

Nasir, the son of Imran, was playing with a child of his neighbours, identified as Bilal, son of Muhammad Rafaqat, in the street on March 31. The children exchange harsh words over some matter and Nasir slapped Bilal.

Bilal went home and complained to his family. Bilal’s grandfather Muhammad Ashfaq Gul took hold of Nasir and dragged him to his house. Ashfaq`s family, including Bilal’s mother Shabana, tortured Nasir severely.

The neighbours informed Nasir’s father Imran about the incident. He, along with Irshad and Ghulam Muhammad, rushed to Ashfaq`s house where he found his son lying unconscious in a cart while Ashfaq and his family were trying to get him back to his senses.

The boy was shifted to the Chichawatni Tehsil Headquarters Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead.

The Chichawatni Saddar Police arrived at the hospital and an autopsy was done.

The police booked four persons, Ashfaq Gul and three women, Shabana Bibi, Rehana and Ghazala, on the complaint of Imran. Correspondent
