KARACHI -- Police in Karachi have found the bodies of a couple believed to have been murdered and hastily buried by their families after they eloped, and are searching for the perpetrators, AFP reported Tuesday (November 28)
Authorities have arrested at least nine people suspected of ties to the double homicide, including the father of the male victim, but said that several family members sought in the case were still on the run.
The couple were reported missing when the owner of the house they rented in Karachi entered the property after they had not been seen for three days. He discovered bloodstains around the home.
Police say the couple were murdered by family members, including male relatives of both victims, after they eloped without their consent.
