Police said Wednesday they did not believe that the mysterious deaths of a father-son duo looked like an incident of dacoity, as per their initial investigation.
They, however, remain curious about the stabbings after the two men were found dead recently by a family member at their residence near the Abdullah Shah Ghazi Shrine in the metropolis’ Clifton area.
According to Karachi police, the man’s wife — and the deceased boy’s mother — had left for a walk but returned to find her husband and her son dead in their rooms. The senior superintendent of police (SSP) for District South and the district’s SSP of investigation, Sheeraz Nazeer and Tariq Razzak Dharejo, respectively, visited the crime scene.
Speaking to media later, Dharejo said the murders occurred at around 7AM and that both the father, a 65-year-old PhD scholar, and his 22-year-old son were at home, sleeping in their bedrooms.
