Karachi police baffled by mysterious child kidnapper


KARACHI : Police in Karachi’s Quaidabad area are looking for a mysterious kidnapper who is abducting children only to torture them for hours before release.

According to police, at least three children were temporarily abducted, tortured and then released after being severely tortured sending shock-waves among residents of Quaidabad area’s Sherpao colony.
