In his confessional statement to the police, Andola said that he had taken the child on a ride in his rickshaw at 11:30 PM. “I was intoxicated at that time and I kept taking her from one place to another for an hour before we reached Sunday Bazaar Ground at 12:30 AM where I parked the rickshaw under a tree and raped her at the backseat of the rickshaw,” the suspect said, and added, “The little girl jumped out of the three wheeler and fell on the ground due to which her neck’s bone got fractured. I threw her at the garbage dump and returned home where I told my wife that I had gone to Jinnah Hospital with a passenger.”

Sources in police told 24News that Andola in his confessional statement also told the interrogators that he was planning to leave for Multan along with his family to escape arrest.

He appreciated Korangi police for investigating the case properly in order to get to the culprit. “Now it is up to the court that it gives exemplary punishment to the little girl’s tormentor,” he demanded.

Spokesman for the Sindh government said that everybody in the society had to play his or her role in preventing such incidents from happening by keeping an eye on their surroundings. “My heartfelt condolences and sympathies for the victim girl’s parents as we all grieved over this horrific incident,” he concluded.
