KARACHI: As many as four bodies on Wednesday have been found in a burnt house in Manzoor Colony.
Four members of the same family were murdered with a sharp metal. Unidentified criminals set the house ablaze before fleeing from the crime scene.
The murdered family includes, 45-year-old Tariq, Sameena, 40, Saad, 15 and Romaisa, 13. An eight-year-old boy, Hammad was injured in the horrendous crime. Initial investigations suggest that the family members were knocked unconscious before life-claiming penetrations in bodies were made.
Baloch Colony Station House Officer (SHO) Yasin Gujjar said that setting the house on fire was an attempt to destroy evidences. Murdered Tariq’s uncle said that neighbours got to know about the incident after the house exhaled clouds of smoke. He said that Tariq belonged to Dera Ismail Khan and he did not have any personal dispute with anyone.
