A Pakistani man was arrested Monday on suspicion of cannibalism when the head of a newborn baby was found at his home – three years after he was jailed for the same offense.There is no specific law against cannibalism in Pakistan, so as in the 2011 case Arif has been charged with desecrating a dead body and public order offenses.Zafar Iqbal, a police official in Darya Khan police station, where Arif is being held, told AFP that the men's wives and family members had left them some years ago and both were living in the house in isolation.
