HARIPUR: Little is known about the whereabouts of a girl who was allegedly kidnapped in Pind Muneem village in Khanpur in July. Haripur DPO ordered an enquiry into the incident on Friday.
Dayem Khan, who originates from Chitral and resides in the village, registered a written complaint with Haripur DPO after his 12-year-old daughter went missing from their house on July 21.
He also registered an FIR against Hamesh Khan and his two sons, Abdul Rasheed and Luqman, under Section 365-B of the Pakistan Penal Code on the same day. The provision deals with kidnapping, abducting or inducing woman for marriage.
According to the complainant, Rasheed was at Central Prison Haripur while Luqman and his father Hamesh were on bail.
Dayem pinned the blame on the Khanpur SHO and the incharge of the police post in the village for accepting bribes from them and steering the investigation process in their favour.
As per the complainant, whenever the police carried out a raid, the accused managed to shift the 12-year-old to another location. Dayem believes his daughter was kidnapped. He requested the Peshawar High Court and Supreme Court to intervene and rescue the girl.
The Investigations SP has been asked to ensure the 12-year-old is rescued.
Without a trace
A large number of children have gone missing in Hazara Division.
The police have failed to find eight-year-old Sher Khan who went missing over a year ago from Abbottabad. Suriya Bibi, his mother, has been running from pillar to post to ensure her son is found.
The police have also threatened her to dismiss the case but she refused to do so.
The police have yet to trace the whereabouts of three schoolchildren who went missing in Abbottabad in July.
Asadullah – a student of class ten – Shoaib and Shah Zaman, who were in the eighth grade, went to school on July 26, but did not return home.
The school administration told their parents all three children had attended their classes and left for their homes with other students.
As per the administration, the students had been absent from school for a couple of days and did not submit a leave application.
When the missing students returned to school for classes on July 26, they were asked to either pay a fine or call their parents to school.
