KHAIRPUR: The local police have arrested two key suspects in connection with the mysterious death of a young girl in the Ranipur taluka of Khairpur district.
According to reports, 10-year-old Fatima, employed as a domestic maid at a haveli owned by a local influential, was found dead under mysterious circumstances.
After her death, the employer reportedly informed the girl’s mother of her death and advised her to remove the body from the premises.
Fatima’s mother stated that they brought her daughter’s body from the haveli, where she claimed two of her other daughters were also working.
A case has been lodged on the complaint of Fatima’s mother, Shamim Khatoon, under sections 302 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code at Ranipur police station and an investigation has begun.
Making some headway in the case, police on Thursday arrested the doctor, who gave fake medical report of the girl and SHO Ranipur.
The two have been arrested for hiding the murder and allegedly facilitating the murderers of the little girl.
Claims about her death transpiring as a result of torture came to fore when videos of a girl bearing torture marks went viral. It was not known who leaked the videos. These videos were obtained by the police team, which also met some social activists from the area.
The haveli belongs to a family commonly known in Khairpur district as Pir of Ranipur. “This haveli belongs to Pir Asad Shah, who has been taken into custody by police,” DIG confirmed.
