Karachi: Abducted student recovered
KARACHI: A student of NED Engineering College missing since November 5 was recovered and two kidnappers apprehended on Wednesday after a joint operation by personnel of Citizen Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) and Anti Violent Criminal Cell (AVCC) in the Chota Gate area. In a press conference held at the AVCC’s office in Garden, CPLC chief Ahmed Chinoy said that Nabeelul Hasnain, 19, was abducted near Disco Bakery in Gulshan-e-Iqbal. The teenage boy was driving back home after dropping his sister off at school when two men forced their way into his car. They asked him to keep driving. That’s the last anyone saw of him, the CPLC chief said.
The very next day, Nabeel’s family received a ransom call from the kidnappers, demanding an amount of Rs50 million. However, after a few days of negotiations, a sum of Rs1 million was agreed on. Meanwhile, AVCC and CPLC teams started conducting raids in various areas of Karachi to recover the student.
“After a joint raid in Shah Faisal Colony’s Chota Gate area, we succeeded in rescuing Nabeel. The kidnappers were also arrested,” he said. However, he did not disclose any name as he said that investigations were still underway.
Speaking about the incident, Chinoy said that the suspects seemed to know Nabeel’s family as they had a lot of personal information, indicating that the crime was planned rather than a random act.
