There's Just No Reforming Pakistani Cannibals

I'll tell you what...Pakistan is a planet all in itself - more weird shit goes on in Pakistan than just about any country I've run into.

The story comes from Times of India.

Pakistani brothers return to cannibalism after release

ISLAMABAD: In a shocking case, two brothers in Pakistan's Punjab province, who were found guilty of cannibalism in 2011, have been caught with the head of a young boy, a media report here said on Monday.

Arif and Farman, who are from the small town of Darya Khan in Bhakkar district, were first arrested in April 2011 after they were found eating corpses that they stole from a local graveyard.

They had reportedly dug up and devoured from up to 150 bodies before they were finally caught.

On Monday, the police conducted a raid at their house and recovered the head of a young boy.

According to DPO Bhakkar Ameer Abdullah, Arif has been arrested and he admitted to eating human flesh while his brother Farman is still on the loose, Express News reported.

Search operations are being conducted to arrest Farman. Since Pakistan has no specific laws against cannibalism, they were first arrested under the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) section of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) in 2011, and were later charged under section 295-A of the PPC.

They were sentenced to two years imprisonment and fined Rs 50,000 each.

After the completion of their sentence, they were released from Mianwali's district jail and returned to their hometown, to the shock and outrage of residents.

The duo had spent most of their two-year prison term in King Edwards medical college Lahore, where they were being examined by the neurophysiology department, the report said.
