Special Investigation Unit (SIU) arrests four suspects for ‘forcibly overdosing’ girl to death

The police’s Special Investigation Unit (SIU) arrested on Wednesday four suspects on the charges of killing a young girl and later dumping her body to get rid of the evidence.

The body of the girl, whose identity remained hidden, was found wrapped in a blanket in the bushes in Sachal Goth area on September 27. The SIU chief, SP Junaid Ahmed Shaikh, said that the arrests were made in an intelligence-based raid in Gulistan-e-Jauhar, following a technical investigation into the case. He added that police faced resistance in arresting the suspects, identified as Kashif, Ejaz Hussain, Raja and Sabir.

He said that the postmortem report of the girl stated that she died of an aphrodisiac overdose. He added that she died at a brothel which was being run by the arrested suspects and owned by a government official, who was not named.

The officer shared that the initial probe found out that the suspects had given the girl an excessive number of aphrodisiac pills to force her to sex work. As she died of it, they wrapped her body in a blanket and dumped the same in an unpopulated area, he added, further investigations were underway.
