Karachi: Abducted Hindu student recovered; captor held
KARACHI: An abducted Hindu student was recovered and his captor arrested after a brief encounter in Cattle Colony on Tuesday. Mohinder Kumar, 21, was going towards his residence when some armed men intercepted his vehicle and kidnapped him on April 27 in the Sukkun police limits, said SSP Investigation Malir Abbas Rizvi. The captors contacted Kumar’s father, a trader, and demanded ransom money for his release. They asked for Rs10 million for his safe return. However, the family tired to negotiate and offer Rs5 million but the outlaws did not budge.
The family then approached the police for security. On their request, special teams were constituted and deployed in Malir.
During investigations, they found a house suspicious, and raided it. When the kidnappers saw the police in civvies, they opened fire, which was returned by the law enforcers. During the ensuing encounter, one man was arrested while his two accomplices managed to flee under the cover of darkness. On searching the house, they found Kumar injured and chained to the walls.
