QUETTA: Police in Quetta have arrested a man accused of raping and murdering an 18-month-old baby and dumping her body two months ago. He was caught while trying to kill a two-year-old boy in Quetta.
The accused, a 22-year-old Tajik national Nazirullah*, was arrested red-handed when he was torturing a two-year-old boy Mansoor* Ahmed. He had already sexually assaulted Mansoor when captured by the police, said Deputy Inspector General DIG (Investigation) Nazeer Kurd at a news conference at the Capital City Police Office.
He said that Nazirullah had taken Mansoor to an abandoned area in Rind Ghar and sexually assaulted him on June 29. Nazirullah confessed during interrogations that he had raped the minor on April 26 and dumped her body at a vacant plot in Marri Colony near the Western Bypass.
There were multiple marks on the girl’s body, suggesting that she had been stoned and bitten repeatedly.
Kurd said that Nazirullah is a Tajik national but had a Pakistani national ID card, and that police was seeking the record of his ID card from NADRA to ascertain if it was fake. Kurd added that Nazirullah’s family had also been questioned but they appeared to be unaware of his crimes.
