PESHAWAR: The father of a girl allegedly kidnapped by his rivals from Shahukhel village of Karak district on Saturday asked chief minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, chief justice Peshawar High Court and inspector general of police to help recover the ninth-class student and bring to justice her kidnappers.
Speaking at a press conference here, Mumtaz Badshah, father of Neelum Sultana, alleged that one Piayo Shah alias Ibrahim and his sons Haider Ali and Umar Ali and an unknown accused kidnapped his daughter when she along with her other two sisters was coming back from school on June 21.
“They bundled my daughter into their car at gunpoint,” he said. He alleged that soon after the incident the local police were informed, but they allowed the kidnappers to leave safely instead of intercepting them.
Mumtaz said that he had a dispute with Ibrahim which was settled by a jirga in the presence of local police, but the accused violated the jirga’s decision and kidnapped his 13-year-old daughter.
He also alleged that some political figures of the area were forcing him to settle the issue and telling him that his refusal could lead to dire consequences.
