How a woman regardless of being “step” can embroil in subhuman oppression of two children in Karachi’s Gulberg area. Karachi Police Rescue TWO Children Tortured and Kept in Chains by Stepmother.
Gulberg Karachi Residents Intruded the HOUSE OF HORROR to free the Victims
Appalling details emerged on Monday when the residents in the Gulberg area of Karachi intervened and got freed two fragile children, aged four and ten, from the manacles of their stepmother. Moreover, kids were naked and chained with the main gate of the house. The witch-like woman treated the children as they were ‘animals’ and intentionally kept them famished.

“It is a criminal act to chain the children and deprive them of clothing and food, strict action should also be taken against those who handed them over to the stepmother. The children should had been shifted to a shelter home, and strongly condemned criminal negligence on part of the police and demanded of the chief justice Sindh High Court take notice of the incident.”
Vice-Chairman of the Sarim Burney International Welfare Trust Aliya Burney lauded the efforts of ARY NEWS
“ARY News department has done a great job in exposing such elements in the society and called for action against those responsible for such inhumane behaviour.”
Human rights activist Farzana Bari said
“It was the responsibility of the state to take care of children and punish the stepmother involved in such heinous acts. Why the father of the children played no role in rescuing the kids from the inhumane attitude of the stepmother. The negligent role of police in such cases should be accountable and supportive with the oppressor and they never refuse to register a case in such matters.”
