Pakistani Brothers Arrested Over Cannibal Curry
Pakistani police have arrested two brothers for allegedly digging up a freshly buried corpse and cooking and eating the flesh in a curry, the Guardian reports.
Muhammed Arif, age 40, and his brother Farman Ali, 37, were arrested following a police raid on their home in a remote part of Punjab province. The men allegedly cut the legs off the corpse of a 24-year-old woman who died of cancer and cooked the flesh in a steel pot. The brothers had already eaten some of their cannibal curry by the time police arrived on the scene. Senior police officer Malik Abdul Rehman told the Guardian that the brothers were known cannibals and had been dining on corpses, including that of a four-year-old girl dug up from the local cemetery, for at least a year.
According to Rehman, the brothers took up cannibalism out of revenge after their mother died and their wives left them. “It became an addiction for them,” the officer told the Guardian.
Muhammed and Farman were caught red-handed. In addition to the partially eaten curry, the body of their victim was in one room of their house, along with shovels, knives and other tools of their grisly trade. But there is no punishment for cannibalism under Pakistani law; the worst the brothers can be charged with right now is digging up and desecrating a grave– good for six months behind bars.
