The medical report of a teenage girl found dead on Saturday under mysterious circumstances at her home in Orangi Town revealed the girl had been strangled to death.
The initial medical report of Anusha, 13-year-old daughter of Akhtar, revealed on Sunday that the victim was strangled to death after a bone in her neck was found broken.
Initially it was claimed that the girl had committed suicide, but later her younger brothers, who were present in the house at the time of her death, claimed that an unidentified man had come to their house and strangled their sister to death.
The brothers also claimed that the suspect also beat and threatened them before leaving the house. Police said medics could not find any evidence to suggest the victim was also raped before she was killed. They added that the police took the statement by the victim’s brothers seriously, suspecting that it was not a case of suicide but that the girl was murdered.
Police said the victim belonged to a poor family that did not cooperate with her.
Although the victim’s father refused to perform an autopsy on the victim and did not file a complaint, the police opened an investigation. SSP Suhai Aziz said a police team led by DSP Jafar Baloch had been assembled to determine the nature of the incident, as the statement by the victim’s younger brothers could not be ignored.
