Six-year-old girl found dead in Manghopir

Karachi

April 17, 2018

The body of a six-year-old girl, who was allegedly beaten up and subjected to sexual assault by hitherto unidentified attackers, was found in a forest in the city’s Manghopir locality on Monday.

Orangi Town Division SP Abid Ali Baloch told The News that residents of Khairabad spotted a suspicious thing in the forest so they informed the police about it. SP Baloch said a team of the Manghopir police arrived on the spot and found the body, following which they took it to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for a post-mortem examination.

The officer said the girl’s body was at least six days old, adding that there were signs of physical and sexual torture on it. He said the police suspected that the victim was beaten up and raped somewhere else before her body was dumped in the forest.

He added that no female medico-legal officer was available at the hospital, because of which the police were facing delays in ascertaining the cause of the minor girl’s death. The SP said the girl was yet to be identified, adding that a message had been circulated to all police stations across the city to inform the Manghopir police if anyone had filed a missing report of the girl.
