Karachi: Two minor girls were kidnapped by a neighbour on Monday, but they were later rescued by the Gulistan-e-Jauhar police before any harm could be done to them.
District East SSP Pir Mohammed Shah said Mukhtiar, a jockey, visited one of his neighbours in the morning and took their seven-year-old daughter and her eight-year-old cousin to the Polo Ground for a day out.However, when the two girls did not return until evening, their family members started looking for them but all in vain.
The Madadgar-15 service received a call at night and was informed that a man was spotted taking two girls into a flat by force. A police mobile was despatched in response. The caller guided the police party to the flat who rescued the girls after breaking down the front door. The accused, Mukhtiar, was immediately arrested and taken to the police station, while the girls were reunited with their family.
