  • Victims found dead are aged 38, 16, 12, and 10.
  • Police recover a knife from crime scene.

KARACHI: A man, likely in his forties, allegedly killed his wife and three daughters with a sharp-edged tool in Karachi’s Shamsi Society, before trying to unsuccessfully stab himself to death, police said Tuesday.

The suspect remains critically injured in a hospital, according to Senior Superintendent of Police Korangi Sajid Sadozai. He added that the victims were tenants of the house where the crime was perpetrated.

Police confirmed they found bloodied bodies of one older woman, 38, and three girls, 16, 12, and 10 in the house.

The victims were killed with a sharp-edged tool, he noted. The survivor, identified as Fawad, is the husband of the older woman and the father of the murdered girls.

According to police, Fawad, is the prime suspect in the murders.

“The suspect, a sales manager at a private spice-selling company by profession, tried to commit suicide after killing his wife and daughters,” the police official said.

The SSP Korangi said the house was locked from the inside after the murders, “which indicates the suspect was behind the killings”.

Police have recovered a knife from the crime scene, as per SSP Korangi. The Crime Scene Unit has reached the murder site to collect evidence. The investigators are also recording statements from neighbours and other residents in the vicinity.

According to SSP Korangi, the incident is an internal matter of the family. He claimed that the suspect first killed his daughters and later his wife.

He added that the police had to break into the house to get to the bodies and the injured man. Sadozai further said that while Fawad’s family lived on the first floor, his brother resided on the building’s second floor.

I’m sure Fawad committed murders: SSP

SSP Sadozai ruled out the possibility of someone coming into the house and murdering the victims as the family resided in a small portion of a house, which comprised two rooms and there was no entry point from the backside.

“After inspecting the house and given the circumstantial evidence, I am sure that Fawad has committed these murders,” the senior police officer told Geo News.

“From one room, we found three bodies — the woman and two children — and from the other room, we found another body of a child,” he said.

SSP Sadozai said that the suspect’s mother and sister-in-law — who live in the portion below them — broke the door and entered their rooms. “The mother told me that she believes that Fawad has committed [the murders].”

The police officer said the mother informed the authorities that the relations between the couple had never deteriorated to such an extent that he would murder his wife, albeit, they would often fight.

SSP Sadozai said it is possible that the victims might have been drugged before being killed as given the amount of blood in the house, they should have screamed for their lives — but they didn’t.

“The sister-in-law of Fawad has told police that she heard one scream of Fawad’s wife.” About the victims being drugged, he said that it can be confirmed once the forensic report comes in.

The police said they had yet not recorded Fawad’s statement as he was critical.

Fawad didn’t receive salary for four months: mother

Speaking to Geo News, the suspect’s mother said that everything was fine until 1:30pm in the afternoon.

“The girls also went to school and college,” she said. The suspect’s mother added that she heard screams and called upstairs but no one picked up.

“When I went upstairs, the door did not open. When we shook the door hard, the hinge opened. After I went inside the girls were lying where would usually sleep. In the other room, my daughter-in-law was covered with a blanket,” she said sharing details of the incident.

Fawad’s mother added that her son and daughter-in-law had never complained about anything.

“Today, all my granddaughters met me and left for studies. When I went inside, my son Fawad was also lying injured,” the suspect mother informed.

“My son hadn’t received his salary for four months,” she added.

Apart from her exceptional acting abilities, Resham is also renowned for her empathy.

Her significant charitable activities are well known.

Online criticism has been directed at Resham, despite her commendable attempts to promote poor areas.

Nevertheless, she decides to keep an optimistic outlook and is unmoved by the disparaging remarks.

“People on social media say all kinds of things, like she’s making food for charity out of ill-gotten money,” the woman said in response to the criticism. “But I say, let Allah decide.”

Regardless of the doubts she faces, her steadfast faith and fortitude enable her to carry on her charitable activities.

Moody’s says the IMF programme will increase Pakistan’s foreign financing.

Published

By

Moody’s, a reputable international rating agency, has stated that Pakistan’s chances of acquiring funding will increase as a result of the recent agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which offers dependable sources for that purpose from both friendly countries and international financial institutions.

According to a recent Moody’s analysis on Pakistan’s economy, social unrest and tensions could result from Pakistan’s ongoing inflation. The country’s economic reforms may be hampered by increased taxes and potential changes to the energy tariff, it continued.

Moody’s, on the other hand, agrees that the coalition government headed by Shehbaz Sharif of the PML-N is in danger of failing to secure an election mandate, which may potentially undermine the successful and long-lasting execution of economic reforms.

The government’s capacity to proceed with economic changes may be hampered by societal unrest and poor governance, according to Moody’s.

In order to appease the IMF by fulfilling a prerequisite for authorising a rescue package, the government raised the basic tariff on electricity, which coincided with the most recent increase in fuel prices announced on Monday. This report was released by Moody’s.

Food costs have increased in the nation, where the vast majority is experiencing an unprecedented crisis due to the high cost of living, following the government’s earlier presentation of a budget that included a large increase in income tax for the salaried classes and the implementation of GST on commodities like milk.

The most recent comments were made following Islamabad’s achievement of a staff-level agreement for a $7 billion contract that spans 37 months and is contingent upon final approval by the IMF Executive Board.

It states that Pakistan will need foreign financing totaling about $21 billion in 2024–2025 and $23 billion in 2025–2026, meaning that the country’s present $9.4 billion in reserves won’t be sufficient to cover its needs.

Therefore, according to Moody’s, Pakistan is in an alarming position with regard to its external debt, and the next three to five years will be extremely difficult for the formulation and implementation of policies.
