KARACHI: The staff of the Anti-Violent Crime Cell (AVCC) has arrested two suspects allegedly involved in a kidnapping case. AVCC SSP Mohammed FarooqAwan said that on a tip-off, the police conducted a raid in Safoora Goth and after a shoot–out arrested Faizan and Zakir and recovered two TT pistols from them. During investigations, the accused disclosed that they had kidnapped one, Zeeshan Tauheedi, son of Mohammed Irshad, a resident of Block-4, Gulistan–e–Jauhar, on December 17 from outside Sirjee Collegiate, as they wanted to marry but were financially weak, which led to the crime.
According to the father of the kidnapped child, he had paid Rs0.4 million to get his son released. Further probe is underway. He had also lodged an FIR in the Gulistan-e-Jauhar police station and the case was forwarded to the AVCC.
