Kidnappings and police


The real issue in Pakistan at the current time is security situation. Somewhere in between concerned uncertainty over police accountability and the arrogantly tyrannical ramblings in the past is the reality that nobody wants to know. In 2009 there were reportedly 480 people who were ‘kidnapped for ransom’ in Pakistan. Majority of the victims were women and children. The kidnappers are mainly militants or separatists who do this for money or other purposes.

It is the duty of the police to stop this menace from growing further. As years go on, the kidnapping cases seem to increase day by and day and the society has a growing concern regarding security. Police will only be efficient if they are given proper training.
