OKARA: Police claimed on Tuesday to have recovered charred body of a man who had gone missing more than two weeks back at Gogera.

As per first information report, Nadeem Abbas (36) on Dec 24 had gone to Gogera town from Chak Khan Muhammad situated at Okara-Faisalabad Road but didn’t return home.

The family kept on searching him but his cell number was switched off. Later Nadeem’s son Noman got a kidnap case registered under section 365 of Pakistan Penal Code with Gogera police station.

District Police Officer Furqan Bilal deputed Gogera Station House Officer Inspector Qalab-i-Abbas to resolve the case.

On Monday, the inquiry team nabbed a man Afzal and a woman Mukhtaran with the help of Nadeem’s last call. Reports said Nadeem had an alleged affair with the woman who developed relations with Afzal. The couple administered some drugs to Nadeem and set him ablaze.

Police recovered charred body of Nadeem from a field at Gogera-Noor Shah Road on the indication of the couple.

Police added section 302 of PPC in the already registered FIR.
