Earlier in Pakistan, a teacher at a shelter home of a private social welfare organization allegedly beat one of his students to death in Karachi.
The deceased girl was an orphan who lived in a shelter home of a private social welfare organization in Clifton area of Karachi, severe beating by her teacher to death.
Police officials stated that her friends claimed that the girl had died after being subjected to brutal torture by a teacher a few days back.
A judicial magistrate accompanied by a police party conducted raid at the shelter home and recovered at least seven girls. Later, the girls have been handed over to the Social Welfare Department, Sindh.
Meanwhile, police have registered a case and launched investigations into the girl’s murder.
