KARACHI: A young man was on Wednesday found tortured to death inside a Malir farmhouse, police and relatives of the victim said.
The incident enraged area residents and community members, who blocked the main National Highway and alleged that influential personalities were involved in the murder as the victim had made a video of some foreign hunters in his village in Thatta district recently. Later, the victim had also recorded his own video saying that his life was in danger because certain elements were threatening him. He had asked authorities to put his video on record, his relatives said.
Memon Goth SHO Khalid Abbasi said that at about 2.30pm on Wednesday the tortured body of Nazim Sajawal Jokhio, 30-35, was found “from Jam House at Jam Goth”.
He said he was beaten with clubs and punches during a scuffle/quarrel at Jam House and police took into custody two suspects — Hyder and Meer Ali. Malir SSP Irfan Bahadur told Dawn that the body was taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre to fulfil medico-legal formalities. He also confirmed that two people had been detained for interrogation.
