SUKKUR: Larkana police have arrested a woman and a man on Saturday for their alleged involvement in the murder of a man seven months ago in Wasayo Jeho village situated in the limits of Naudero police station.

Atta Muhammad Jeho, a resident of Wasayo Jeho village, used to run a cattle pen with 10 buffaloes. On February 11, Atta Muhammad mysteriously went missing. His wife, Yasmeen, in her statement to the police, had claimed that her husband had gone missing. The police started searching for the man but, after failing to do so, closed the case.

In the meantime, Yasmeen shifted to a rented house in Shahbaz Colony, Larkana, after selling her husband's house in the village. The elder brother of the deceased, Allah Dino, suspected that Yasmeen was somehow involved in the disappearance of his brother and he informed the Sachal police, Larkana, to trace the record of his deceased brother's mobile phone.

On tracing the record of Atta Muhammad's mobile phone, it was revealed that the phone was being used by his wife, Yasmeen. The police raided the house in Shahbaz Colony and arrested Yasmeen. The woman, during the investigation, admitted that she, with the help of Abdul Hafeez Memon, who used to work under Atta Muhammad at his pen, and an accomplice, Ahmed Memon, intoxicated the man and strangled him to death. She further said that the body was then thrown in Naro Wah near Bakrani.

The police have also arrested Abdul Hafeez from another locality of the city, while the third accused, Ahmed, is absconding. When contacted, Sachal head constable Hamid Ali confirmed the arrest of the woman and the man, and said that the police are investigating the case and conducting raids to arrest Ahmed. "As far as the body of the deceased is concerned, we will try our level best to find it," he said. A case has been registered against the three.
