SHEIKHUPURA: The regional police nabbed a gang of kidnappers, recovered the ransom it had taken from the family of a boy kidnapped last month, and returned the money to the family on Monday.

Sheikhupura police conducted raids, arrested the gang from Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and recovered the ransom amount. The gang’s ringleader was killed in a raid.
Regional Police Officer Zulfiqar Cheema distributed cash prizes among the police team involved in the case.
