Police ordered to recover girl

KARACHI, Sept 4: A district and sessions court on Thursday directed the station house officer of the Shahrah-i-Noor Jehan police station to recover a 17-year-old girl allegedly kidnapped by her cousin and to produce her in court on Friday.

The father of the girl, Mohammad Maskeen, through his counsel Shahbaz Sahotra submitted an application to the court of district and sessions judge, central, stating that his nephew, Jahanzeb, with the help of his friends had kidnapped his daughter, Nadia, a student of Class X, from their native town in district Mansehra while she was on her way to school on July 22.

The applicant claimed that on Aug 28 he came to know that Jahanzeb along with associates Ali Jan, Sawar and others, had taken his daughter to Karachi and detained her in Umer Farooq Colony, in the limits of the Shahrah-i-Noor Jehan police station.

He said that he reached Karachi on Aug 31 and made efforts for the recovery of his daughter but to no avail and therefore had moved the court to help him out of this problem.

The application said that Jahanzeb wanted to marry Nadia but Mohammad Maskeen had opposed the matrimonial alliance. This opposition ultimately led to the kidnap of Nadia.
