LAHORE – A teenage boy confessed to the investigators that he murdered an eight-year-old village fellow after sexually assaulting him inside an empty house in the Kahna area, police said on Monday.

The killer, identified as Asad, has also admitted that he repeatedly hit Sajid Ali in the head with bricks. Asad further said that he murdered Sajid after the minor boy threatened him of disclosing his name to the family for sodomising him. Police claimed that the killer took the boy to an empty house located in the Purana Kahna area, where he sodomised the teen before the killing.

Investigators said that the killer’s father was also a criminal and history-sheeter, who recently got released from jail where he was imprisoned on several murder charges. Khurshid Ahmed Mayo, the father of the deceased boy, has appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to provide him justice.
