Rawalpindi - The investigators have decided to bury the dead bodies of an unknown woman and her four-year-old son in Pirwadhai graveyard temporarily after their identities could not be ascertained, sources told The Nation yesterday.

The bodies would be buried in Pirwadhai graveyard at 6:00am today (Sunday), they said.

On June 20, police found three unknown dead bodies, including one each of a woman and a child, from the bank of Soan River near Ghorakhpur village.

The dead bodies were shifted to District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital for post-mortem. However, the names of the deceased were not released by police or doctors.

According to details, locals informed Saddar Bairooni police about presence of dead bodies on the bank of Soan River. A police team rushed to the spot and took into custody the dead bodies that included a 30-year-old man, 25-year-old woman, and a six-year-old boy.

According to police, the dead bodies had injury marks of a sharp tool in their heads. The police also recovered a motorcycle from the area with no registration number.

Later on June 21, the police identified one of the dead persons as Muhammad Bilal, 30, resident of Sukhoo village of Gujar Khan.

Sources told The Nation that a team of Homicide Investigation Unit (HIU) probing the blind triple murder case had approached the management of Pirwadhai graveyard for temporary burial of the bodies of mother and son. They said that the police could not establish identity of the two bodies and their whereabouts despite passing several days.

Sources said that police would offer funeral prayers of the unknown dead bodies and would bury them.

An investigator confirmed the development. Seeking anonymity, he said that the family of Bilal had not been cooperating with the police as Bilal had contracted love marriage with a Pashtun woman living in Gujar Khan and later kept her in Gorakhpur village. He said that the heirs of girl attacked the couple and killed them along with child. He said that the police had sought mobile data of cell phone of Bilal.

Meanwhile, the investigator told that HIU, which is investigating murder cases in the limits of three police stations of Rawat, Chontra, and Saddar Berooni, have been facing shortage of staff.
