One of the accused in the Kohar Kalan cannibal case on Tuesday confessed that he along with his aides had killed and eaten two of their own children.
Rana Farman, who is in police custody with three other people, gave a statement to the police confessing to eating the children.
Speaking to Express News, Station House Office (SHO) Fakhar Zaman said that the bones of the children had been recovered. He said that the accused persons had killed their sister in the name of honour three years ago, after which they had eaten her and ‘became addicted to human flesh’.
Police had arrested two middle-aged brothers from Kohar Kalan village on Sunday on suspicion of stealing and eating human flesh in an investigation into cannibalism.
The police had acted after the parents of 24-year-old woman, who had died of cancer, complained that her body had gone missing after the burial.
The brothers had confessed that they had been pulling bodies for the past year. The body of the girl was found with a missing leg, which the two men said had been eaten by them.
