ISLAMABAD: Less than a week after two youngsters were stabbed to death in the capital, the police have managed to arrest the suspects.

Two youngsters, 22-year-old Shehroze Masih and 27-year-old Amjad Masih were stabbed to death while Shehroze’s elder brother Waseem and Waqar Masih had suffered cuts when two groups had clashed in a predominantly Christian settlement in Sector G-7/2 of the capital on February 15.

The assailants had been identified as Aneel Masih — alias Teli, and Shahzaib Masih — alias Baau, along with four to five unidentified accomplices.

A case had been registered against Aneel and Shahzaib — both of whom had fled after the incident.

After the case had been registered, Inspector General of Police Dr Sultan Azam Temuri directed SP (Investigation) Zubair Shiekh to arrest of the suspected killers.

A team led Homicide Unit Inspector Arshad Ali and ASI Ghous Muhammad and others managed to track down the killers and arrest them.
