Pakistani cook accused of killing 22 with poisoned food

Sadiq Dogar was allegedly paid by Arsal Khan Khichi to serve the deadly meal to a political rival.



LAHORE, Pakistan — Police say they have arrested a cook accused of poisoning to death 22 people in central Pakistan in a political feud between two branches of the same family.

Police officer Sadiq Dogar says the incident followed recent provincial elections in which Arsal Khan Khichi lost to his cousin Jehanzeb Khan Khichi.

Dogar says Khichi is accused of paying the cook 50,000 rupees ($500) to poison food at his rival's home in Mailsi town in Punjab province on June 9. Nearly 50 people became sick, and 22 died.

Dogar told The Associated Press late Thursday night that Jehanzeb Khan Khichi was not home and did not eat the poisoned food. He says the cook has confessed to poisoning the food, and Arsal Khan Khichi is on the run.AP

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
