Karachi: The gruesome case of the murder of a woman along with her three children was solved in four days, and two teenaged boys said to be involved in the murders were arrested.
On Friday night, the bodies of 35-year-old Seema, wife of Jameel Ahmed and their three children, four-year-old Rimsha (aka ‘Munni’), nine-year-old Saima, and eight-year-old Osama, were found brutally slaughtered inside their house situated in the Khwaja Ajmir Nagri police limits.
The Investigation staff have reserved some evidence and conducted the chemical examination of the items found from the house, including the bodies of the victims. Two daggers which the criminals had thrown on top of the water tank situated on the rooftop of the house were found, and Ahmed’s statement was recorded.
DIG West Zone Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti said that a team had been set up under the direct supervision of SP New Karachi Town Mohammed Farooq Ahmed.
DIG Dasti said that during the course of the investigation it was found that Ahmed had had “illicit relations” with a woman called Shabnam for the past 12 to 13 years. She had an 18-year-old son named Zubair.
The investigators had arrested Zubair as a suspect. During interrogation he confessed to the murders and also named his accomplice, Nabeel. He said that they had both slaughtered Seema and her children to extract revenge from Ahmed, who was also a family friend.
In his confessional statement, Zubair said that he was aware of his mother’s relationship with Ahmed. The latter visited their house regularly, and beat Zubair up several times, prompting the latter to plan revenge.
Zubair and Nabeel had planned the murders four days in advance. On December 12 at about 4 pm, he went to AhmedÂ’s house and asked Seema for the keys of the upper portion of the house. When Seema asked him why he wanted the keys he said that he had forgotten to take his trousers before leaving the house. A few months ago, Zubair’s sister and brother-in-law lived in the upper portion of Ahmed’s house. Zubair used to live with them.
Seema gave him the keys. When he got to the first floor, Zubair gave Nabeel a missed call on his cell phone and called him upstairs. Osama also came upstairs on Nabeel’s tail, and asked him to play with him. Nabeel immediately took out a bandage from the drawer, tied Osama’s hands together, and stabbed him in the stomach.
Suddenly, Osama’s older sister Saima came in, and on seeing her brother lying dead with blood oozing from his stomach, she screamed and asked Zubair and Nabeel what had happened. The two men then caught the child and killed her too.
Later, they came downstairs and locked the upper portion. When Seema called for them, they got scared. Meanwhile, they ran into Ramsha, who they took into another room and killed. They then placed a knife at Seema’s throat and told her not to scream. After this, they tied her hands together and killed her.
Zubair further said that after committing the crimes, they robbed a gold chain with a locket, a cellphone, a small generator and one DVD player, packed all of this into a box and walked away towards their houses after locking Ahmed’s house.
Zubair told investigators that he had kept the gold chain and the cellphone at Nabeel’s house, while the generator and the DVD player were lying in a shop in Sector-5A1, owned by a man named Ali. The investigators conducted raids and recovered the stolen property. Further probe is under way.
