Murder most foul
The murder of factory worker, Jagdesh, who was attacked and killed by his colleagues on April 8 in Korangi Industrial Area may have been done in the presence of the police who did nothing to stop this from happening, eye witnesses told The News.
Jagdesh Kumar was murdered on suspicion that he had uttered blasphemous words, in the process enraging his fellow workers who beat him to death.
When contacted, the Korangi Police denied this allegation but did not give any details. After the death of Jagdesh, a Hindu by faith, the police registered FIR 268/08 under section 302 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code against “unknown persons.” The case is registered at the Korangi Police Station. However, till the filing of this report, no arrest has been made despite the fact that the murder took place in a crowded factory area in full view of several workers.
