The decomposed and strangulated body of Fauzia, 13, was found near the University of Karachi on Tuesday. Passers-by informed police about the body, which was then shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital (ASH) for a postmortem.
A medico-legal officer at ASH said that the body was two days old and that Fauzia had been gang-raped and then strangled to death. The MLO also said that the body bore several torture marks. According to the police, Fauiza had been kidnapped on September 15 from Gulshan-e-Iqbal’s Block-3.
Her family had already filed an FIR against unknown people at the Mobina Town police station. This is the first such incident to take place since February 27, when the tortured body of a minor girl was recovered from the Sachal police limits.
