A report has surfaced on the social media claiming that a maid poisoned an elderly couple at a house in Madras Society in Gulshan-e-Iqbal area of Karachi
A user shared a post warning the citizens especially those residing in the Gulshan area.
She wrote: A public service message for residents of Karachi, specifically Gulshan.
This maid was hired by a family friend of ours on 8 January 2021 in Madras Society, Gulshan-e-Iqbal. The very next day (i.e on Saturday) she cooked food which the children did not have, but the parents were unfortunate enough to have eaten that afternoon.
Since the parents were sleeping from after Zuhr beyond Maghrib and did not wake up, they were rushed to the Dow Ojha Campus where they were diagnosed to have been poisoned. The mother of the household succumbed within two days of being in the ICU but the father has survived and is still not well.
She has stolen about Rs 5 lac worth of valuables but also deprived someone of their better half.
The food she cooked has gone for a lab test and investigations are underway but I would like to urge everyone to be vigilant while hiring maids,” she concluded.
The police version was not yet released till filing of this report.
