In a barbaric incident in Pakistan, a group of unidentified men dug up the grave of a woman in a graveyard in Karachi’s Landhi Town area and raped the dead body.
According to the reports, the shocking incident came to light after the family of the deceased were informed that men had dug up the grave of the woman and raped the body, who was buried just a day earlier. As the family members were alerted of this heinous crime, a large number of them, including the neighbours reached the Ismail Goth graveyard.
However, the deceased’s family said that they did not wish to file any cases regarding the horrible incident. The family further said the undertaker responsible for the maintenance and upkeep in the graveyard told them that a dog had removed the slab from the freshly-made grave.
The family, however, do not believe that a dog would be capable of removing the slab from a grave, adding that the grave-digger vanished from the graveyard later.
Reportedly, it is still unclear how many men were involved in this shocking incident. On the other hand, the police have gathered evidence from the site of the crime and confirmed that the grave-digger was nowhere to be found. The police have begun their searches to look for and detain the grave-digger.
The late woman’s relatives informed the police that they did not wish up to take any legal action over the matter but stressed on their appeal that such an incident should not take place in the future.
In 2011, a gravekeeper named Muhammad Rizwan from North Nazimabad, Karachi was arrested for necrophilia. He was arrested after he confessed to raping 48 female corpses. Rizwan was caught running away after desecrating a corpse. He had caught the attention of nearby grave diggers and some other people.
