Missing youth’s dead body recovered from river

CHITRAL: The dead body of the young man who mysteriously disappeared from Chitral town six days ago was recovered from River Chitral on Saturday, adding further mystery to the incident.

The youth was identified as Iqbal Naveed, son of Subedar Zar Wali. The family originally belonged to Saht village of Mulkhow and is settled in Zargaran Deh, Chitral town.

There was no clue to his whereabouts as the family continued searching for him for six days. 

However, parents and relatives of the deceased ruled out such a possibility and said he had went out to fetch medicine for his mother and was also seen at the DHQ hospital CCTV footage before disappearing.  

On the other hand, police could not resolve the disappearance of the youth due to lack of expertise. Rescue 1122 recovered the dead body from riverside at Jutilasht and shifted it to the DHQ hospital where a postmortem was carried out before handing it over to the relatives of the victim.

Social media activists suspected foul play in the death of the youth and demanded that the police should work on scientific lines based on the postmortem report and bring out the truth behind the unfortunate death of the youth.
