Citizens protest outside police station as six-year-old abducted in Karachi
KARACHI: Residents of Karachi’s Bilal Colony area on Tuesday protested outside the area police station after a six-year-old was allegedly kidnapped from outside his house, ARY News reported.
According to ARY News correspondent, a six-year-old named Huzaifa was allegedly kidnapped by armed riders from outside his house in Bilal Colony area. The minor was playing outside his residence after coming back from school when he was abducted in front of other children.
A large number of area residents gathered outside the Bilal Colony police station and demanded recovery of the minor. The protesters also blocked area’s main artery the Godhra road and demanded quick action from the law enforcement agency against the abductors.
SSP Central told media that the parents of the child have contacted police and the department has started an investigation into the incident. The police officer added that statements of eye witnesses are also being recorded for prompt investigation.
It is pertinent to note here that earlier this month, a minor girl was allegedly kidnapped after being snatched from her mother outside an apartment building near Napier police station on Wednesday.
The minor’s mother told police that a veiled woman first greeted her then almost immediately snatched her daughter from her hand and ran away. She added that she cried for help but the woman managed to escape with her daughter.
On September 12, police’s Anti-Violent Crime Cell also arrested a gang of kidnappers in Karachi.
