KARACHI: Two butchers were arrested in Karachi's Ibrahim Hyderi area on Monday for selling dog meat to the public under the guise of goat meat.

Acting on a tip-off, police conducted a raid in Ibrahim Hyderi and arrested two men Imran and Shahab who were slaughtering dogs on a building's rooftop.

According to police, the two men were merely accomplices who had been duped into slaughtering dogs, while the main suspects had managed to flee.

Police also seized a gunny sack containing dog meat from the two butchers. Further investigation into the matter is underway.

Pakistan, which is a Muslim-majority country, prohibits consumption of dog meat. Dog meat is also regarded as unclean under Islamic dietary laws.
