Father of kidnapped college girl appeals to CM & IGP


PESHAWAR: The father of a student, who was allegedly kidnapped by her neighbours, has asked the chief minister and inspector general of police (IGP) to take steps for her recovery.
Irshad Ahmad Khan told a press conference on Thursday that his daughter, who is a student of the 2nd year pre-medical group, at a local public sector college was kidnapped on November 21 at gunpoint from the jurisdiction of Bhanamari Police Station when she was going to the college in a vehicle.
He alleged that his daughter had been kidnapped by Yaseen, Lal Muhammad, Jan Muhammad, Riaz and Neelo, sister of Yaseen, who were his neighbours living in Murshadabad locality.“Yaseen’s family members had visited my home several times and wanted me to marry off my daughter to their son (Yaseen) but we refused. I had even asked my daughter about her willingness to the marriage proposal but she too was not interested and said she wanted to pursue her studies,” said Irshad.
Flanked by Anwar Khan, a lawyer, and the maternal grandfather of the kidnapped student, he said that when the wagon driver resisted, the kidnappers resorted to firing in the air while the other girl students in the wagon raised alarm for help but no one came to their help.
“The wagon driver informed us about the incident and we went to the relevant police station wherein we lodged a first information report (FIR) against the culprits,” he said. He added his family had lost trust in the police because they failed to arrest the accused.
