The family of an eight-year-old girl who was raped and murdered have complained that the police are not serious about the investigation and are delaying giving them copies of the FIR and death certificate.
Shadbagh resident Isha, 8, was found dead at an abandoned cold storage warehouse on June 2. She had been kidnapped, raped and then strangled to death.
“Police are more interested in investigating the family,” said Muhammad Asif, Isha’s cousin. He said the police had taken four suspects into custody on the family’s nomination but done no other work in the case. He said every time a family member went to the police station to pick up the FIR or death certificate, they were asked to return later.
SHO Javaid Iqbal insisted that the family had been given a copy of the FIR. He said that they were awaiting DNA test results to identify the killer.
