Girls’ recovery

A district and sessions court directed the police to recover the two girls allegedly kidnapped by their uncle and submit a report till Aug 16.

The mother of the two kidnapped girls, Zainab, 11, and, Sara, 8, through an application told the court that her daughters were kidnapped by their uncle, Shah Tareen, following a Jirga decision at their native town in district Mansehra and requested for their recovery. The district and sessions judge, Central, Sofia Latif, on Aug 4 had directed the SHO of the Gulberg police station to implement the court’s orders regarding the recovery of the two girls kidnapped and submit a report till Aug 11.

However, the SHO on Monday told the court that efforts were under way for the recovery of the detained girls and a police party had been dispatched to Mansehra. The police official also sought some time from the court in this regard.

Earlier, on July 22, the court had directed the Sindh home department through the SHO to constitute a police team and dispatch it to Mansehra to recover the detained girls and asked the Mansehra DPO to cooperate and coordinate with the police team.

The court also directed the police to recover the detained girls and arrest the kidnappers, and to submit a report in court within 10 days. However, the court’s order could not be implemented since the SHO had misinterpreted it.
