Innocent boy whose life was snuffed off in a hideous manner with an insidious plot hatched?
‘I asked Rukkaiya as regards the fact that when did she first smell that there was a foul play that had happened in her son’s death? Without mincing words and in an affirmative tone she responded by saying, ‘that day after coming back from market along with my three daughters I went looking for Shariq. He was not in the house. Initially I thought that he must be around with his friends but he was not the kind who would have stayed out for a prolonged period of time. By about an hour and a half I began to get worried and started the initial search and inquiries from the neighborhood but still could not locate him and then began the frantic search and finally reached the pond. There I saw the man cutting branches of the tree near the pond, his gaze was at us and at the pond. But on seeing us he left. He had not cut anything but perhaps was enacting the role as if he was. Then we spotted the footwear of Shariq and located the body of my son. It instantly looked like it had been placed there and in no way could have come up, which usually happens if a person dies by drowning. My straight suspicion was at the man who was cutting the tree branches. Thereafter I lost my senses and could not put two and two together’!
-‘My next question to her was, what could be the reason as to why the Police did not register the case (they till date have not done so incidentally)? The response was on the following lines, ‘who listens to ordinary mortals. Shariq for them may be just another child but they should know every child is very dear to the mother. Shariq was my only son and the brother of his four sisters. My small little house stands shattered. I went to the Police station but met with deaf cold doors. I gave an application but nothing happened. Now it is, ‘I thank the almighty for listening to me’ since I want nothing but justice for my son and punishment for his killers. I know I cannot get my son back and I will make sure that he does not get obliterated in closed files in Police Station Mendhar’!
-‘ I did realize that she was not the same Rukkayia who came to me for the first time three weeks ago when I wrote the first story and I still believe that a post mortem that in the first instance was avoided would have spoken a lot. But the same can still and if our sources are correct then the Police will not refrain from using that cold and chilling process. Exhuming the body to check out the details as to what happened’. But one thing I will say with a certain degree of confidence is that this case is not very far from getting cracked and splattered apart’!
How hardening and hurting to the heart it must be to do this thing: to change an innocent soaring being into a bundle of struggling rags and pain and then dumped under the water to drinking It as much as he can to finally blow up the stomach, liver, lungs and scorch up the brain. That is how the little Shariq found the doors open to a devilish killing by an evil intent. But now the probe, probably on war footing, has begun with the SDPO Mendhar ZA. Jaffri is going full throttle to get to the roots. The suspects are being called and interrogated but one thing still baffles, why the case has not been registered so far. If it has been then there has to be a designation given to it!
I. A few things that have come to the forefront so far:
Faded Perfection, well Shariq death case cannot be considered the same because plenty of things have come to the forefront and it proves one thing still very ditto, a killer abides by no one’s rules..they take what pleases them without consciousness to its decisions. They destroy what they want to . They leave what remains as shards of a dream, drawing blood with every step! Those steps Mendhar Police have to find out. They must be by all means. This is not a high profile murder case in any way but still is! Every life taken has to be a high profile for someone and that is why the institution of police has been formed and paid to work!
Why was the case not registered and why Rukkayia was made to run circles around the Police Station?
Why was the stress on the Kacheri within the house to sort out the problem which from the very first look was evil!
Who were the people who wanted the matter to be sorted out by the word Khap Kacheri?
Why did the man who was cutting branches and none was cut leave the area pond in a jiffy?
Why were certain Police officials holding back Sadiq and his family to hold back and sort the matters out within the household?
Why was Sadeeq being threatened?
By the information given to us by our sources the pond in question was constructed by a Police official? There has to be a reason as to why he constructed that?
Obviously not for murder as that would sound ridiculous but that is where Shariq was found dead! By the way if villagers are to be asked and especially so the family of the deceased kid then there was no requirement of the same! Shariq would not have gone there to die?
Probably he was taken? A speculation though but in that fast moving event someone forgot the foot wear! That indeed was the evidence on the crime spot because clothes were still on his body still! The killer pond needs to be dried up! Definitely something more is bound to come out?
Why was the mobile phone formatted? There is a high degree possibility that Shariq knew something happening within the family and probably he had filmed it as evidence? Obviously it had to be sensational and that is the reason as to why the phone was blurred up! But a portion of the data can still be recovered!
Post mortem was not allowed to happen why?
Similarly when the ‘Chachi’ was summoned to the Police Station people were trying to stop the Police with a legal insertion that a lady cannot be called to the Police Station? Agreed but the Lady Police can do it? She was picked up but what she said has not been disclosed. But be rest assured that it would be.
Finally why was the body buried in the dead stillness of the night? There has to be a reason and in fact a blizzard full of them! What are they?
Things are definitely falling into the desired places and the jigsaw cube is bound to be completed. By all means it is an unnatural death. But the question that remains unanswered is who killed Shariq!
A shattered heart cannot be changed by people who do not change their thinking. First of all the people of Gholad Khalra should realize it. If today Rukkaiya lost her child ten tomorrow someone else also can! This murder can teach only one lesson and it is that there is no better show of human power than to be a proud purveyor of death, to attempt slaughter. In this case Shariq was put to the most difficult of deaths and the burial under water. To kill for sport, for indulgence, speaks to the infinite depths of human desire that has always been selfish and cruel in modern times! This is the most insane and the worst possible option!
