Sukkur: Small girl still missing after 4.5 years
SUKKUR: A couple began a hunger strike outside the Thul press club on Tuesday to demand the police find their daughter, four-and-a-half years after she was kidnapped from Garhi Hassan Sarki village.
According to Fazila Sarki’s mother Sakina Khatoon, the Supreme Court had taken suomotu notice of the case and had ordered the Thul police to find her daughter within a month. “But three whole years have passed and the police is still clueless,” she said. Fazila was six years old when she was kidnapped. “But so far, neither the police, elected representatives nor the sardars have done anything to find her.”
Earlier on, the police and influential people from the area claimed that an alleged criminal Budho Sarki was behind the kidnapping. But Budho Sarki died two years ago. “Now the police said that Fazila was handed over to some other criminal,” her mother said. She appealed to the kidnappers to tell the family if Fazila is alive. “If she is alive, in the name of Allah, give my daughter back to me,” pleaded the mother in tears. Fazila’s father Abdul Razzaq Sarki, older sister Farzana, and grandmother Hakeeman Khatoon were also on protest.
