Drug addict lynched by mob in Karachi over hurting a minor

Man kills daughter over freewill marriage in court

A mob in Karachi’s Mauripur area lynched a man on Thursday after accusing him of hurting a child.

The latest lynching comes nearly three weeks after two men were stoned to death in the nearby Machhar Colony area when locals accused them of trying to abduct children. The victims later turned out to be telecom workers who were surveying the area to identify ‘black spots’ in telecommunication network coverage.

The man who was lynched in Mauripur on Thursday morning was identified as Hatim, who, the police said, was battling psychological disorders and had become a drug addict.

Officials at the Hawke’s Bay Police Station said Hatim had hit a four-year-old boy with a stone. This enraged the toddler’s father Sher Khan, who along with other people, pelted Hatim with stones and beat him.Hatim died on the spot.

The police arrested Sher Khan and were trying to get hold of other people involved in the lynching.
