NOWSHERA: A resident of Gujrat district has asked the Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif and Punjab inspector general of police (IGP) to recover his kidnapped wife.
Speaking at a press conference here on Sunday, Umar Farooq, who is working in a Gulf state, said he had married Sumbal Bibi, belonging to Nowshera Cantonment, five years ago. He said his wife along with his mother Perveen Bibi was on her way to a local market in Malikpur area in Gujrat district when the accused, including Wasif Shah, Zulfiqar, Ijaz Shah, Qalb Shah and Jameela kidnapped his wife. He said the accused demanded Rs700,000 ransom for her safe release.
The resident said an investigation officer of the Rehmania Police Station Ahmed Nawaz asked for Rs100,000 for her recovery from the captivity of the kidnapers. He said the police official was given Rs100,000 for the release of his wife but nothing had been done so far.
Umar Farooq complained that the police official was now threatening and embarrassing his family members, specially his mother, Perveen Bibi, in the case. He appealed the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Punjab IGP to take action against the corrupt police official and secure safe recovery of his wife.
