Court returns ‘incomplete’ chargesheet in Effendi murder case


A court on Tuesday termed a charge-sheet submitted by the investigation officer in the Zain Effendi murder case “incomplete” and directed him to submit a complete challan afresh.

The Judicial Magistrate (East) observed that a lot of things seem incomplete in the charge-sheet. He directed the IO to incorporate the DNA report of the accused and other things in the challan.

The court gave the IO until March 8 to submit a fresh challan. According to the police, six accused including Gul Muhammad, Imran, Faizan, and Rehmatullah have been arrested in the case.

It is noteworthy that an eyewitness has identified the accused involved in the murder of Zain Effendi before the court. Eyewitness, a domestic help in the house, identified the accused in an identification parade among 10 dummy accused.

The domestic servant identified accused Rehmatullah, Imran, and Gul Muhammad in the court. Zain Effendi, a grandson of Sindh Madressatul Islam’s founder Hassan Ali Effendi, was slain at his residence near Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi on January 06.
