ISLAMABAD: A court in Pakistan's eastern city of Sargodha has extended the remand of two brothers accused of stealing corpses from a graveyard and then eating them.
The police had arrested earlier this week two brothers, Arif Ali, 40, and Farman Ali, 37, for allegedly digging up newly buried corpses and eating their flesh. The brothers practicing cannibalism was discovered after a body of 24-year-old deceased woman, named Saira Parveen, was found missing from her grave in Darya Khan town of Sargodha district. Saira's family became suspicious after visiting her grave on Sunday and found as if it had been dug up and then untidily built up in haste. After digging the grave to check the corpse, it was found missing. Her family lodged a complaint with the police and the subsequent police probe led to the arrest of two brothers. The police recovered the remains of Parveen's body from their house.
