KARACHI: A step-mother has been found embroiled in subhuman oppression of two children in Karachi’s Gulberg area.
The stepmother allegedly kept the children tied with iron chains and did not provide food for several days. The kids are aged between 4 and 10. Residents of the area said they could get the house open with extreme difficulty.
In the video being shared on social media, they can be seen tied to chains. Because of starving, their bones have become visible.
After father of the children parted ways with their mother, the stepmother did not care about their well-being. Neither did their mother ever asked about them. A neighbouring woman said when she entered the house and tried to feed the kids, their step mother intervened and did not allow her to do so.
The kids told that their mother had left them after she was divorced and their step mother did not even give them clothes to wear, while their father was jobless.
