“Self justice”: Teen age killed over theft allegation


KARACHI (ENNS) A 16-year old boy was killed on Saturday after he was accused of stealing valuables from a bungalow in Karachi’s Bahadurabad area, told the police.

The family said “Rehan is not a thief but he went to a bungalow for collecting money because as he had slaughtered animal in the area.

“I worked at the bungalow. They [the house owners]have snatched my son from us,” his mother said.
According to Rehan’s brother that he went to the house to collect his money.

The police said that two people, the bungalow owner and his friend, have been arrested in connection with the murder.

Daniyal, the owner, claimed that Rehan was a trained thief. He said that Rehan stole from his house and threw the valuables from their terrace to where his two friends were standing.

The police said that they are investigating the incident. However in a video that went viral on social media, the accused is seen while threatening and beating the victim; while an unknown person can be seen with pistol in his hand.
There are many parts of the country including Karachi where people took law in their hands and punish accused or rivals and they call Islamic way of justice which is wrong interpretation of religious teachings.
