Islamabad: Four abductions in 2 months
ISLAMABAD: Four people, including two teenagers, were abducted for ransom in two months despite huge deployment of police in the city.
Two teenagers were kidnapped on February 21. The abduction cases were registered with Sabzi Mandi and Shahzad Town police stations. So far, the police have not sorted out these cases. A police official told Daily Times on Saturday that 15-year-old Muhammad Afzal, a seminary student, was kidnapped from I-10 Markaz, near Pirwadhai Morr. He said the kidnappers were demanding ransom from Afzal’s relatives.
Sabzi Mandi Police Station House Officer (SHO) Khalid Masood said initial investigation showed that the kidnappers belonged to Sindh and the police were chasing them.
Police sources said four people kidnapped Saeed, a teenager, from Iqbal Town, which falls in the Shahzad Town police station jurisdictions. The attacker broke into Saeed’s house, tied up his companion Sufaan, and took him away. Sources said the kidnappers were demanding heavy ransom from Saeed’s family. The police are yet to find the teenager.
However, two people, who were abducted on January 27 and 29 from the limits of the Bhara Kahu and Industrial Area police stations respectively, were recovered this month.
The rising incidents of kidnapping are causing panic among residents of the city. The police fail to catch the criminals because of lack of professionalism, training and modern equipment.
