RAWALPINDI – Two suspects were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly kidnapping, raping and killing a 10-year-old girl two days ago.

As per reports, the two suspects allegedly abducted their neighbour’s daughter in Rawalpindi’s Ismailabad area on Monday and raped and choked her to death before dumping her body under a bridge.

The local media quoted SHO Yasir Kiani of the Saddar police station as saying “The two suspects returned home after dumping the dead body and then started searching for the girl along with others to avoid suspicion. Later, a neighbour informed the family that they had seen one of the accused with the young girl.”

The SHO added that when the police arrested an accused, he confessed his crime to the police, and also revealed the involvement of another accused in the crime.

A First Information Report was registered against the accused by the deceased girl’s brother and further investigation is underway.
