LARKANA, Sept 23: A married woman and a young girl, who were kidnapped on Sept 16 from the village of Bagee in the remits of Airport police station, were recovered on Saturday.

Larkana SSP Jawed Soonharo Jiskani told reporters that police had raided the village of Faiz Muhammed Khokhar on information and recovered the victims from a house whose owner fled before the raid.

The Airport police produced the victims in the court of the third judicial magistrate of Larkana. SHO Ayaz Bhutto told the court that two accused Aijaz Khokhar and Ali Gohar Khokhar, both policemen, nominated in the FIR had been arrested.

The court ordered police to produce the accused with the victims on Monday.

The Larkana SSP on Thursday (Sept 20) dismissed seven policemen on the charge of leaking information about the raid to recover the victims — a 27-year-old woman and her 16-year-old niece belonging to the Bhutto clan — had been kidnapped by a group of armed men of Khokhar clan.

The sources said the Khokhars and Bhuttos were at daggers drawn over some matrimonial affair.

On Sept 16, people of the Khokhar clan stormed a house  and kidnapped the victims to avenge the killing of a man from the rival clan, the sources said.—BoC
