Police on Friday reported the discovery of a dead Pakistani man, aged 27 at the time of death, in the village of Arkasa on the Aegean island of Karpathos. The body was found bound with wire and wrapped in a sheet, while the initial evidence points to murder. The body of the unlucky Pakistani was found on Thursday afternoon and an investigation launched by local police and a team of officers sent in from the island of Rhodes.
The dead man lived in the village, in a house rented with another four Pakistani men, and worked in a local restaurant. His house-mates found him when they returned to the house at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, wrapped in the sheet and surrounded by a pool of blood.
The police were called and when they unwound the sheet found the 27-year-old inside, his hands and neck bound with a wire and signs of blows to the back of his head. Authorities said the manner of his death pointed to an "crime of honour" and are therefore investigating his past and any activity in his own country that may have invited retribution.
