Woman allegedly drowns two-year old girl


KARACHI: The body of a two-year-old girl, who had allegedly been drowned by her mother, was discovered near Do Darya in Karachi on Tuesday.

The two-year-old Anam’s mother, Shakila Rashid, had allegedly drowned the child on Monday evening, according to Sea View police.

According to SSP South Pir Muhammad Shah, “following the incident, police had arrested 28-year-old Shakila Rashid after residents identified her.”

“This morning, we found Anam’s body near Emaar Apartments at Do Darya,” the SSP explained.

The SSP added that a murder case has been registered against the woman and she will be presented before a court.

“She will be presented before a court to seek her remand,” he said.

“The woman in her statement said that her husband kicked her out of her house without any reason one month ago. Her father did not allow her to come back to his house either and as she had nowhere to go, she decided to get rid of her daughter and commit suicide,” said SSP Investigation Tariq Dharejo.
