Two young brothers, aged 6 and 8 were kidnapped a few days ago in Tirah Maidan, FATA. On Thursday, March 26, their dead bodies were recovered from a sewer near a mosque.
This is not the world we want our children to live in
According to the residents of the area, Asif and Munsif had gone to tuition as per routine but did not return home. Their father had taken his mother to the Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar. When he got the news of his sons gone missing, he immediately left for his hometown.
A heinous crime committed just for the sake of ‘property’ and money
Shafiq Afridi, the father of the victims, alleged that the heinous crime was conducted by his cousins in order to usurp his property. And unfortunately, as subsequent investigations later revealed, his allegations were true.
It’s a shame that the murderers were uncles to the two kids. The perpetrators Mughal Shah and Jahangir Khan have been arrested and have confessed to their crimes of kidnapping and then throwing their dead bodies in the sewer.
People of the area have been demanding justice for Asif and Munsif for days now. And today, in the wake of their confession, an enraged mob has burned down and demolished the houses of the perpetrators.
These two brother were missing for three weeks from Teerah Khyber district. Their father told my friend @abidafridi889 that once his goat went missing and he couldn't sleeps for many days he can't cope with this loss. Today the dead bodies of both these kids founded in a gutter. pic.twitter.com/oACrTk4dyN
