The dreaded serial killer of Pakistan, who swore and brutally murdered peoples
Pattern of action
Furthermore imagine that even if there was an approach, at least no one told the police about the initial investigation. Two corpses were found a year ago from nearby areas Shad Bagh and then Rabi Road.
In both those incidents also the pattern of the event was the same. Both of them were murdered by breaking the neck. Killing people by breaking their neck on the way was not usually the way of the perpetrator.
Drug addicts are often seen begging. Even masseurs are not able to make so much money from massage; such people are found involved in minor crimes. So did they have enough money to kill him?
If not, who was the murderer behind such people? Even after a lengthy investigation, the local police could not find the answer and the clue of the perpetrator.
Investigation of the incidents of Bhati Gate and Islam Pura was entrusted to the Criminal Investigation Agency (CIA) Sadar.
In the area of Islam Pura …
The police started with the person being killed at Bhati Gate. Initial investigation revealed that the people belonging to the ‘caste’ of the deceased knew him by the name of ‘Bhola Malasiya’.
On being asked by the police, he told that ‘for a long time he was living around the donor court. Nobody knows where he came from, who was it. ‘
The person who was murdered in the area of Islam Pura last September was identified as 21-year-old Faheem, a resident of a closed road.
The housemates told the police that he was intoxicated and often disappeared from the house for several days. Who could kill such homeless people?
This was a mystery and a clue for the police. Those who had to rise and set, they could also have the secret of their death. The CIA police, after investigation, reached out to a man who was involved in those four murders as well as killing a man in Rawalpindi.
How did the police reach the murderer?
In cases of blind murders in which there are no eyewitnesses and little evidence, the police usually have two decisive methods.
One is through informers, and the other is a new way in which help is taken from mobile phones. And the police used both of these methods to reach the murderer.
The murderer used to carry money, precious items and mobile phones etc. in some incidents.
Inspector Mohammad Yakub, the investigating officer of CIA Sadar, said that initially the method of ‘Jio Fencing’ was used to locate the murderer.
In this method, the police try to find out in which area he was present with the help of mobile phone companies or the location detection device of a mobile phone.
A map of different places is made at different times, and then the person can be reached.
Did he only kill by breaking his neck?
But according to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, the police did not gain much in the slaying of the naive masseur in this manner.
Muslim knew that he could have been in similar people who were slaughtered, i.e. drug addicts and masseurs.
‘We took help from our informants in the area who kept getting up close to those people and kept collecting goods. After that, many people were questioned based on suspicion.
30-year-old Ejaz alias Jaji was also among them. Ijaz alias Jaji told the police that he had committed three murders with his hand and that two were involved in the conspiracy that his accomplices had engaged.
Ijaz said the police that ‘he used to take her to a park nearby on the pretext of massage and hit her by hitting the knife or breaking the bead (neck bone) of her neck. After that, he used to escape from the spot with his mobile phone and cash.
Neck break method
According to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, Muljim told him that ‘I used to tell my victim during the massage to leave your neck loose and then put a knee behind the neck and break the bead with both hands.’
Then, without seeing whether the person was dead or not, he used to escape from the spot with his valuables and money. The innocent masseur was slaughtered but with a stab, because he too was a masseur like him and knew how to break his neck.
Ijaz told the police, ‘I took him to the park and stabbed him first on the chest near the heart and second in the stomach. Bhola was not dead, he crawled in the injured condition and reached under the bridge of the metro bus in front of the donor court.
According to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, “Nobody paid attention to him, and he died there.” After a long time, his body was reported to the police.
‘The first murder was done by breaking the passer’s neck.’
Ijaz told the police that he had killed Mohammed Fahim in Islam Pura by stabbing him on the way, but three years earlier he had done the first murder by breaking the neck of a person walking on the road.
He told that ‘I had caught him from behind and broke his neck with both hands by kneeling behind the neck.’
The incident took place inside a park in Faizabad, Rawalpindi area and was also helped by his colleagues. The person died on the spot and Ijaz escaped with the cash and mobile phone he had.
Inspector Mohammad Yakub said that ‘after every crime, the person who commits the offence is a victim of fear.
This was the first murder of Ijaz Jaji, and after that, he was in awe of being caught, and he fled from Rawalpindi. ‘
Where did the perpetrator learn to break his neck
But he was intoxicated and soon needed money to get drunk. In Lahore, he found mates like him and mingled with them and killed two people.
He then slaughtered Bhole and Mohammed Fahim with his own hands. According to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, the people died at Shad Bagh, and Ravi Road was yet to be identified, for which the concerned police had been informed.
According to the investigating officer, the criminal had not taken any training, etc., for this method of killing. ‘Just this work, the masseurs know how much pressure can be given to which parts of the human body, if the person can become unconscious or if he wants to kill, then his neck can be broken.’
In the past, similar incidents had occurred in which masseurs were found involved in robbery and robbery, but there was very little time to rob someone after robbing them.
Who is the judge?
According to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, ‘Most of these massaging criminals used to press such parts of their victim’s body that either he would go hundred or he became unconscious, and he escaped with his money and valuables.
Ijaz alias Jaji, when the police were presented before the media personnel recently, it can be seen that he looked like a weak person like very thin skinny drug addicts. He was around 30 years old and looked older than his age.
He told the police that he had ventured into the world of crime from a young age. It started when he started getting up and running with drug users.
He told the police, ‘There was a court near our house, outside which many drug users used to sit. Sitting near them made me addicted. ‘
During interrogation, Jaji told the police that ‘I had committed theft for the first time from my home’.
Why did he kill?
On being caught, the family members beat him and drove him out of the house. Jaji never went home after that day.
Inspector Mohammad Yakub was told by the perpetrator that he did not even know how his family now looked and lived.
All he knew was that he lived in Attari, a suburb of Lahore. From home After being evicted, Jaji started petty theft. Increasing talk of stealing motorcycles and big burglaries reached.
According to the police officer, he was intoxicated. He said that ‘I needed money to get drunk’.
While getting up with such people, he also learned the work of massage. When he did the first murder, he got the money collected. He told the police that after the first murder when I survived, I thought it was a straightforward task.
You used to get so much money together, and you don’t get caught. ‘ According to the police inspector, he then slaughtered unceremoniously.
‘Naive masseur got only four hundred rupees.’
Jaji told the police that he had come to know about the naive masseur who was slaughtered in the area of Bhati Gate, that he had made a good income that day and that he could have Rs 1500 to 1600.
Still, when he stabbed him. After escaping the money from his pocket, he came to know that the naive masseur had only 400 rupees.
Similarly, in Islam Pura, on the way, he had killed a drunk man, Mohammed Fahim, who had a fight over his drug addiction and ran away with Rs 1500 and a mobile phone from his pocket. In every incident, he got a small amount and mobile phone etc.
But according to the police, the people he targeted in most of the incidents were the people of his area, and he was also afraid that he could be caught if he was left alive.
‘But the intoxication had affected his ability to think. He could do anything to get intoxicated. ‘
According to Inspector Mohammad Yakub, Muljim used to inject intoxicants which are considered the last stage for such (intoxicated) people after which they die a few days later.
Jaji is sent to prison on judicial remand. But in January, the naive masseur, who was slaughtered in his hands in the area of Bhati Gate, is yet to be identified.
According to the police, his identity card was not produced, and the help of a DNA test was being taken to identify him. Now the police are looking for other accomplices involved in the gang of criminals.
