Man Arrested for Murdering Nephew on Faith Healer’s Advice in Toba Tek Singh
A man has been apprehended by the Sandalbar police in Faisalabad for the murder of his three-year-old nephew, following advice from a faith healer. Initially, the suspect had reported the child as missing, but suspicions arose when the child’s body was discovered in a manhole, showing signs of strangulation during an autopsy. During questioning, the man, identified as Kashif, admitted to taking the life of the child based on the guidance of a spiritual healer.
The motive behind this heinous act stemmed from a tragic event in Kashif’s life: the death of his own daughter. A self-proclaimed spiritual healer had advised him to perform a “sacrifice” involving a child from his family to ward off further misfortune. Tragically, he acted on this advice and took the life of his young nephew. Authorities are currently conducting raids to locate and apprehend the faith healer responsible for the tragic advice.
