Sheikhupura: Kidnap case, four suspects remanded
SHEIKHUPURA: Ferozewala police solved a kidnapping for ransom–cum–murder case and arrested four suspects, including a woman, and later obtained their two-day physical remand from a magistrate on Friday to interrogate them further.
The suspects allegedly kidnapped a boy, Rizwan, from Sanatpura locality in Ferozewala a few days ago and demanded Rs400,000 ransom from his family. On the failure of Rizwan’s family to pay the ransom, the abductors strangled him to death and threw his body in a distributary near Kot Radha Kishan.
Rizwan was abducted when he was playing in front of his house and a woman suspect, Sajida Bibi, was the first one netted by a police team led by DSP Malik Hayat.
During interrogation, Sajida revealed that her three accomplices, Amanat, Fayyaz and Mansib, had abducted the boy and took him to a village near Kot Radha Kishan and demanded the ransom from his family. However, the family could not deliver the required money at a place designated by the kidnappers on which one of them, Fayyaz, also sodomised Rizwan before strangling him to death.
Amant, Fayyaz, Mansha and Sajida were produced before a Ferozewala magistrate who sanctioned their two-day physical remand.
Sheikhupura Range DIG Anwar Virk praised the performance of police team and announced prizes and commendation certificates for DSP Hayat, Inspector Hasan Farooq Ghuman and other members of the team.
