Khairpur: Police fail to trace eight kidnap victims
KHAIRPUR: There has been no progress in locating eight men kidnapped from Sobodero and Ranipur areas during the past two months. Six people, mostly belonging to the Khuhro clan, had been kidnapped from Sobhodero in early January while a man had been kidnapped in December 2007.
The Khuhro community held a meeting on Tuesday in Dilawar Khuhro village and decided that if police failed to locate the seven people, they would organise protests.
They said they would stage a demonstration on the National Highway against the kidnapping of Ameer Ahmed Khuhro and five of his friends.
Meanwhile, traders in Ranipur organised a protest meeting on Tuesday evening. It was also attended by relatives of the three kidnapped men from the same area.
They decided to launch a protest drive after Muharram, if the three kidnapped men were not freed by then.
The DPO of Khairpur said that the police would soon launch an operation against bandits after Muharram for the release of the kidnapped people.
He added that the Sobhodero police had formed several teams.
