ABBOTTABAD: The Abbottabad police have failed to trace the killer of three-year-old Faryal, who was murdered after assault here a week ago.
Talking to media persons on Wednesday, district police officer Abbas Majeed Marwat said so far blood samples of 274 suspected people had been sent to forensic lab in Lahore for DNA test.
He said services of some seasoned police officers, who had carried out such kind of investigations in other parts of the country, had also been hired to reach the culprit as early as possible. He said they were awaiting the DNA report of the suspects. He said no loophole would be left in the investigation process. He said DNA reports were likely to be received in about a week.
DPO Marwat said the provincial police chief was personally monitoring the entire investigation process.
