Three minor girls brutally murdered in Muzaffargarh


MUZAFFARGARH: Three minor girls were found brutally murdered near their residence here on Tuesday with law enforcers tracing the culprit, a senior police official said.

It is not clear if there was more than one killer involved at this stage.

Talking to media, District Police Officer (DPO) Muzaffargarh Syed Hasnain Haider stated that the police were informed about the disappearance of three sisters on Monday from the Thermal Colony area. Subsequently, a search operation was launched.

“Immediately after receiving information from the girls’ family, the police initiated a search and discovered three bodies in an abandoned house near the victims’ home,” he explained.

The victims were identified as seven-year-old Abia, eight-year-old Zahrah, and 11-year-old Areesha.

He stated that the police were in the process of collecting evidence and expressed hope that the culprits would be apprehended soon.

As per the complaint submitted to the police before the discovery of the bodies, the brother of the victims narrated that his two sisters, Zahrah and Abia, had gone out to play at a nearby playground around 5pm on Monday and did not come back.

He further stated, “Later, my other sister Areesha went out to look for the two missing sisters, and she also did not return.”

In his plea, he had requested the police to conduct a thorough search for his sisters, as his own attempts to locate them had been in vain.

As of now, the police have not registered a First Information Report (FIR) as investigators are still gathering evidence and recording statements.

Meanwhile Punjab caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi has taken notice of the incident and directed the regional police officer (RPO) of Dera Ghazi Khan to provide a report on the matter.

He further called upon the police to thoroughly investigate the grisly killings and ensure the swift apprehension of suspects.

The chief minister emphasised that immediate justice should be delivered to the grieving families without any delays.

Additionally, according to the statement, Naqvi extended his heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the bereaved families.
