KARACHI: Three suspects including a woman who had kidnapped the granddaughter of former Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Aijaz Jakhrani were caught by police on Thursday after they brought the girl back following the broadcast of her kidnapping on television.
The suspects who were identified through the CCTV footage confessed to the crime after being caught.
The police, after viewing the footage in which a woman is seen taking the girl away, took immediate action and arrested the culprits.
The criminals admitted to abducting the girl from Karachi’s Frere area while she was playing outside her home. They have been remanded into police custody for two days.
They said that they brought the girl back to her home themselves after the news ran on television. However, they had initially pretended to be among those who found the child.
The matter is being further investigated.
