the woman buried his body in the courtyard
A Pakistani woman has killed her two-year-old nephew in a revenge plot on her brother.
The woman, Farzana, confessed to the murder of the toddler, Ali Raza, who was first thought to have gone missing.
The incident occurred in Pakpattan’s Arifwala Tehsil.
According to Superintendent of Police Investigation Aisha Butt, the Pakistani woman was at her brother’s house and arguing with him when the crime took place.
The brother, Muhammed Shafiq, has four children and works at a sock factory in Lahore’s Chohang. After the brawl, the woman left and kidnapped her nephew, while he was playing outside the house.
She then took the two-year-old to her house and threw him into a drum of water.
After the boy drowned, the woman buried his body in the courtyard with the help of an accomplice, Wazir Ali.
The body of the child has since been found, and both the Pakistani woman and her accomplice have been arrested.
Kidnappings are common in many South Asian countries and often occur within family units.
In another shocking incident, an Indian grandmother was arrested for the abduction of her own granddaughter.
The grandmother and four others were arrested on February 15, 2021, for kidnapping the newborn from her father at Saheed Laxman Naik Medical College and Hospital (SLNMCH) in Odisha.
The suspects were identified as Basanti Gouda, Tuna Harijan, Hemant Mohuria, Ranjita Mohuria, and Gongai Gouda.
The baby’s grandmother, Gongai Gouda, was asked to admit the baby to the hospital’s special newborn care unit (SNCU).
The baby’s mother died in childbirth, so could not feed the baby herself.
However, according to Koraput SDPO Guanidhi Mallik, Gongai Gouda abducted the child instead of taking her to the SNCU.
The elderly woman then handed the child to Hemant and Ranjita, a childless couple from the village of Singpur.
After the news broke that the baby’s whereabouts were unknown, the other four suspects claimed that the newborn had gone missing.
The child’s father and family members, including Gongai, all filed a police complaint.
After police launched an investigation, they recovered CCTV footage of the suspects handing the baby over to Hemant and Ranjita.
It was then discovered that the couple had handed the baby over again, to another childless pair in the village of Kuagam.
The child was subsequently rescued and handed back to her father by district child development officer Rajashri Das.
Everyone involved in the kidnapping, including the elderly woman, was then arrested.
