The cave where the boy was killed and dumped

BY OUR CORRESPONDENT

GILGIT: An eight year old boy, murdered by his friends on Sunday in cold blood, had been sexually abused by the killers three months back in Gilgit, investigators revealed on Tuesday.

In a bid to refrain him from divulging the secret of the sexual assault, the assailants killed the boy brutally, and dumped his body in a cave near Gilgit River.

They cut his ears, smashed his head with stones, stabbed and finally strangulated leaving him in a pool of blood 500 meters from his home in Majini Muhalla – a residential area in Gilgit.

The arrest of Killers however resolved the mystery surrounding the murder of the eight years old boy.

Hasnain had earlier gone missing on Saturday, saddening the town as his parents and relatives made announcements though mosque loudspeakers.

What actually happened

Between 4.30pm to 5.00pm on Saturday, Shoaib, 16, allegedly tempted the kid by offering to buy him a CD from Dar Plaza market at Gilgit. The young Hasnain got tempted and accompanied Shoaib, who also happens to be his neighbor.

The killer, on one or the other pretext, took him to river which lies on a five- minute walk from Dar Plaza. Two of his accomplices – Abrar and Osama who are 14 and 15 years of age respectively – followed them without being noticed.

By the time they reached the river, the day light had already faded. Shoaib pushed the young kid into the cave where he tortured him to death, while his accomplices stayed at some distance to keep a vigil on the passerby.

What the relatives say

Naseem Khan, an uncle of Hasnain, told ‘Outpost’ the main killer accompanied them as they launched a search to find out the ‘missing’ Hasnain. “Shoaib was accompanying us throughout the day and night as we went door to door to know the whereabouts of our child,” said Khan, who is a businessman in Gilgit.

“He didn’t leave a slightest impression that he was the one who killed our baby.”

The relatives next day lodge a complaint with the police station about missing of the boy.

In-charge CIA Gilgit, sub-inspector Muhammad Tariq, who was heading the investigation said when he got the complaint on Sunday, he decided to take help from CCTV cameras first to trace the boy. “To being with, I thought to sought help from CCTV footage,” Tariq told Outpost.

“I sat with my staff in the CCTV cameras room and focused on footage that was recorded from 4.00pm to 5.00pm on Saturday. “We zeroed in on the kids in the Dar plaza to recognize the boy of which we had a latest picture,” said Tariq, whose efforts helped resolve the case in the shortest possible time in the region.

Tariq said luckily they found Hasnain and Shoaib in the footage. “We immediately called the relatives of the boy and they recognized both.”

Shoaib was then seen taking Hasnain towards Domyal area Gilgit River in other footages.

Inspector Tariq says when he went to Shoaib home and met him there, he refused. “However he confessed his crime later on and guided police towards the cave where the body was dump.”

Inspector Tariq said the killer also confessed to have abused the boy three months ago. “The boy often threatened me to divulge the information to his father. This was why I decided to kill him,” Shoaib told police during investigation.

Superintendent police Gilgit, Ali Zia said the arrest was possible due to the CCTV cameras that were fixed in the town to curb crime.

Though child abuse cases are rare in Gilgit, yet they do happen. Two months back, a four years old boy was kidnapped from a mosque by a drug addict and killed him. The killer was reportedly a mentally challenged person.

Pakistan’s government does not release frequently updated statistics for child sexual abuse. But according to Sahil, an Islamabad-based activist group, cases of child sexual abuse covered by the media grew from 668 in 2002 to 2,788 in 2012. Courtesy

When Dooms Day Shocked Darel Valley

samar KhanBy: Samar Khan

دو اگست 2003 کی وہ خون آشام رات مجھ ٹھیک گیارہ سال بعد آج بھی نہیں بھولی… نہ صرف میں بلکہ میرا پورا گاؤں اس بھیانک رات کی بھیانک یادیں تاحال بھلا نہ سکا…. یہ شب اہلیان گیال داریل پر قیامت صغری بن کر ٹوٹی تھی….. ہم نے کبھی تین جنازے ایک ساتھ نہیں دیکھے تھے اور اس رات ھمارے پچاس عزیز ایک ساتھ چل بسے تھے….

ہوا کچھ یوں تھا کہ ایک مقامی ٹھیکدار کے گھر اچانک آگ بھڑک اٹھی، آگ کیسے لگی؟ یہ راز، راز ہی رہا….. گاؤں والے آگ بجھانے جاۓ وقوعہ پہنچ گۓ ابھی انہوں نے کام شروع کیا ہی تھا کہ ایک زوردار دھماکا ھوا…. اس کے گھر میں زیر تعمیر چینل کا بلاسٹنگ مواد ذخیرہ تھا…. آگ وہاں تک پہنچ گئ اور دھماکا ہوا…. دھماکا اتنا شدید تھا کہ اس کی آواز پوری داریل ویلی میںسنیگئ….. اور جس جس گھر میں سنی گئ، مکینوں کو ایک پل کے لیے لگا کہ ان کا گھر نشانہ بنایا گیا ھے…..

خیر میں جب وہاں پہنچا تو منظر بہت بھیانک تھا، جگہ جگہ لاشیں بکھری پڑی تھیں، جو گھائل ھوگۓ تھے ان کی درد میں ڈوبی چیخیں سنائ دے رہی تھیں…. لوگ اپنے پیاروں کو دیوانہ وار ڈھونڈ رھے تھے…. میں نے سب سے پہلے اپنے جگری دوست عبدالحناس کو دیکھا، جو ایک نالی میں پڑا آخری سانسیں لے رہا تھا…. اس وقت میری آنکھوں سے بے اختیار اشکوں کا سیلاب امڈ آیا…… میں زندگی میں پہلی بار پھوٹ پھوٹ کر رویا…..

پوری وادی میں یہ خبر جنگل کی آگ کی طرح پھیل گئ اور لوگ جوق در جوق گیال کی طرف آنا شروع ھوگۓ….. 3 اگست لاشیں دفناتے دفناتے گزر گیا…. میں نے سنا تھا کہ غم جب حد سے گزر جاتا ھے تو احساس جاتا رہتا ھے… دل پتھر بن جاتا ھے… پہلی بار اس بات کا مشاہدہ کیا….. کیونکہ رات کو جو چیخیں، آہیں اور سسکیاں سنائ دے رہی تھیں وہ دن کے اجالے میں کہیں کھو گیئں…لوگوں کی آنکھیں گویا پتھرا گئ تھیں، ان کے آنسو خشک ھو گۓ تھے، دل فولاد بن گۓ تھے اور کوئ چاہ کر بھی رو نہیں پا رہا تھا……..

زیر نظر تصویر جناب عبدالخالق مرجوم کی ھے، جو اس دھماکے کی بھینٹ چڑھ گۓ… مرحوم، حاجی رحمت خالق ممبر جی بی اسمبلی اور جناب حبیب الرحمن صاحب سٹی مجیسٹریٹ گلگت کے بڑے بھائ تھے…. انہوں نے انجینئرنگ کی ڈگری حاصل کی مگر عملی زندگی کا آغاز بحثیت مدرس کیا…. مڈل سکول گیال کے ھیڈماسٹر رھے… ایک بہترین میر کارواں کی تمام تر صفات پائ جاتی تھیں…. ایک حلیم الطبع، فیاض، ہنس مکھ، ملنسار اور غمگسار انسان تھے….. ان کیساتھ جو ڈیڑھ سال کا عرصہ سکول میں گزرا، وہ میری زندگی کا انمول دورانیہ رہا….. میں ان سے جڑی ایک ایک بات ایک ایک یاد کو کبھی بھی فراموش نہیں کر پاؤنگا…. آج ان کی برسی ھے، اللہ تعالی ان پچاس لوگوں کو جنت الفردوس میں اعلی مقام دے. آمین.

 

World’s richest Pakistani sails into London in some style

The world’s wealthiest Pakistani has arrived in London and in some style as well.

Florida-based multi-billionaire Shahid Khan sailed into the Thames this week in his brand-spanking new 308-foot long mega-yacht, appropriately-named ‘Kismet’.

Mr Khan 64, is in the capital not only to watch his National Football League (NFL) team, the Jacksonville Jaguars play in an NFL game at Wembley Stadium this weekend but also to take in some matches featuring his Premiership Football team Fulham FC, which he bought for a reported £200 million from Harrod’s owner Mohammed Al Fayed last year.

According to reports, Mr Khan – the world’s 367th wealthiest individual with a personal fortune of £3 billion – bought his latest toy after selling up his previous yacht, which was a mere 223 feet in length.

The arrival of the sleek vessel, built by famed German yacht-builders Lurssen unsurprisingly attracted plenty of attention around Canary Wharf with dozens of people clicking photographs and enquiring who the boat belonged to.

The ‘Kismet’ reportedly features 6 staterooms – mega-suites in British parlance – with Mr Khan’s master stateroom boasting its own private deck and a jacuzzi.

The boat also has its own heated swimming pool – for the days when the Thames is not quite there for a quick dip – as well as barbeque areas, a helipad and even a mammoth cast-iron jaguar upfront in tribute to Mr Khan’s beloved Jacksonville Jaguars.

Shahid Khan

Born in Lahore, Mr Khan is believed to have travelled to the US at the age of 16, immediately finding his own version of the American Dream; working as a dishwasher and earning $1.20, a “fortune” compared with what his countrymen were earning back home.

After gaining an engineering degree from the University of Illinois, Mr Khan joined the automotive manufacturing company Flex-N-Gate, a business he would go on to purchase and build into a $4.4 billion car parts giant.

In 2012 he purchased the Jacksonville Jaguars, becoming the first ethnic-minority team owner in a uniquely American sport. source
