Kidnapped Punjab women recovered in Shikarpur

August 25, 2012

SHIKARPUR, Aug 24: Police recovered four women and a girl kidnapped from Punjab from a house near Wagna-Gate Mohalla after conducting a raid late on Thursday.

It may be noted that women abducted from Punjab are sold in different parts of upper Sindh.

The Stuart Ganj police on receiving information that a deal was in process to sell women raided the house of Yar Muhammad alias Yaroo Jatoi.

The recovered women were identified as Nazia, 30, Shaheen, 25, Naheed Akhtar, 25, Rabia, 18, and eight-year-old Kainat.

Police arrested Akram Arain and Ghulam Rasool of Punjab and Zahid Shah of Jacobabad from the house where women were lodged.

However, four men including the house owner Yaroo Jatoi, Javed Punjabi and two unidentified men escaped before the raid.

Police produced the women before the Civil Judge-VII on Friday who ordered their custody in police till Saturday to record their statements. Accused were remanded in police custody.

It was assumed that some of the culprits were professional kidnappers who abducted women from Punjab to sell them in Sindh.—BoC
