28 February, 2013
ISLAMABAD: The search for a suspect in the recent death of a minor girl ended after a university student was arrested, whom the police described as a "serial killer".
According to Bhara Kahu police officials, Malik Ibrar who confessed to murdering an 11-year-old girl after raping her, has also confessed that he murdered the daughter of a senior police officer in the same fashion.
Sub-inspector Mansoor, the investigation officer of the case, described to this scribe that the accused, Ibrar, had physical relations with a tutor, Zahra Mehek and he used her as a tool to approach other girls to satisfy his lust. According to police sources, the accused couple established a pattern to "hunt their preys". Police sources said that Mehak would first become friends with young teenage girls and then invite them over at her house, where she would then mix intoxicants in water, which used to render the victims unconscious and then Ibrar raped and murdered them.
A police source said that the accused couple might have killed more than just two people.
"Ibrar has also confessed to the rape and murder of a young girl in his native town, Lala Musa, Gujrat. The rapist choked the girl after raping her," police sources told our sources.
"The serial killings and rapping of children and young girls after intoxicating them in the capital has revealed an inhuman-like practice," said a top police official.
This heinous and bloodthirsty crimes, reflects the serious fault-lines in all aspects of Pakistani society, from police to administration to politics to media, and of course the individual. Zahra Mehek and Ibrar were arrested after the Supreme Court of Pakistan took a suo motu action on this matter.
According to reports, the police have also arrested the owner of a medical store, who allegedly sold the intoxicants to Ibrar at a higher price.
It is pertinent to mention here that there are dozens of illegal medical stores operating in the twin cities, where various kinds of tablets are available and sold to the public without a doctor's prescription.
Dr Allahudin said, "Owners of illegal medical stores are not familiar with medical rules and some of them are openly selling toxic medicines to mint money. The operation of illegal medical stores is a major cause for the increase in rape cases."
