Boy beaten up by stepfather dies in hospitalArchive
KARACHI: A seven-year-old boy, who was critically injured and admitted to the National Institute of Child Health after he and his brother were beaten up allegedly by their stepfather a couple of days ago, died while being treated at the NICH on Tuesday, officials said.
They said Muhammad Amir, stepfather of seven-year-old Kamran and six-year-old Adnan, beat up and seriously injured the two brothers over some domestic issue on Saturday night.
“The stepfather ran away after the incident and neighbours shifted the boys to hospital,” said Korangi SSP Junaid Sheikh. “The elder brother, Kamran, died today [Tuesday] at the NICH. The family and doctors told police that both brothers were hit with some hard and sharp metal object on the head. Kamran’s injuries were more serious. Adnan is still under treatment.”
