SAHIWAL: Police claim to have arrested the alleged kidnapper, rapist and killer of a three-year-old boy who had gone missing on Sept 12 at Kot Delawar, Depalpur.

According to city police station in charge Farrukh Shahzad, minor Sufyan, a resident of Kot Khadim Ali Shah, Sahiwal, had gone to Depalpur with his parents to visit his maternal uncle Asif on Sept 9.

On the evening of Sept 12, the minor went missing and despite a desperate search by his family and locals could not be traced.

On Sept 13, the missing minor’s body was spotted by a woman lying outside an abandoned house, a few yard away from Asif’s house.

Depalpur city police had registered a case against unknown killer and started investigation.

Mr Shahzad said on suspicion, the police interrogated a man, Waris, of the same locality who confessed to have abducted the minor and then sexually assaulted him. To conceal his crime, the suspect strangled the minor.
