Is he the real killer...police is notorious for the brutal tactics of using torture as a practical method forcing the criminal and accused to admit their crimes..

So basically the killer was a Shia who used to kill sunnis (including students and a doctor!). People dont shout #sunnigenocide when sunnis are killed. But if a shia is killed, suddenly it becomes shia genocide!

WHen will this hate mongering end?
