  1. Although very shocking and bad incident, however we are citizens of Pakistan, where all have rights. Better not to be emotional but be helping hand to the authorities in identifying the culprits. Individuals should not take such cases in hand and pass irrational remarks. Our sympathies are with the aggrieved family and can imagine the pain of the parents. May his beautiful soul rests in eternal peace. Amin

  2. Rip 😥 So sad hear about this shocking news! May Allah grant him high rank in jannah. All the villagers should be investigated one by one it is the only possible way to find him and if the killer found , should be hanged publically.

  3. معلوم ہوا ہے کہ پچھلے 10 سالوں میں چترال میں کافی قتل ہوئے ہیں، یہاں تک کہ ایک 5 سالہ بچے کو بھی مارا گیا تھا۔کتنے
    پھانسی پر چڑھے؟ کتنوں کو عمر قید ہوئی؟ صفر ضرب صفر
    سزا کا خوف بلکہ بالکل ختم ہوگیا ہے۔
    ریاست کے دور میں قصاص اور دیّت کا قانون فوری طور پر نافذالعمل ہوتا تھا۔ قاتل کو بلچ کے دریا کے گھاٹ پر لے جا کر مقتول کے بھائی یا وارث سے گولی مروائی جاتی تھی۔ صدر ضیاء الحق صاحب کے وقت تک سزا کا کچھ خوف تھا اب سخت قانون صرف ناداروں کے لئے رہ گیا ہے۔

    1. Yest that is true but we chitrali people are fast becoming savage and do not value human life. Two young souls were brutally killed by people in Oveer last year and nobody came out to condemn this brutality and the killers went unpunished.
