Body of four-year-old minor found in Karachi


KARACHI: Body of a four-year-old child was found from Karachi’s Hussain Hazara Goth on Sunday, with police calling it a mishap, but father of the deceased alleging that his son was kidnapped.


Doctors at the hospital identified drowning as the cause of death, while police said initial investigations suggested the matter to be a mishap.

Father of the deceased said that his son was missing since Sunday evening and he had reported it to the police. He said that he was informed that a rickshaw driver, resident of the same area as that of deceased child, brought the body to a hospital.

He contended that there was no such water body in the vicinity in which the child could have drowned and demanded police arrest the kidnappers. The father also said that they had no enmity.

Police, however, arrested three suspects including the rickshaw driver, who had brought the body to hospital. The suspects are being interrogated.
