Another minor abducted in Kasur


KASUR: Another child was abducted from Kasur on Thursday night, adding to the ever-growing cases of child abduction in the city.

According to details, two motorcycle riders attempted to abduct two children from Hashim Chowk, however, after being followed, the motorists left one of the boys behind in a state of unconsciousness.

As of reporting time, the other child was still missing, while the one left behind was shifted to Tehsil Headquarter Hospital.

Police said the minor under treatment at the hospital has been changing his statement. Authorities further said no one has come forward about the alleged abduction of the other child.

The recent abduction case comes after the remains of at least three of the four children who went missing from the city’s Chunian locality were found earlier this week.

All three were brutally raped before being buried underground, police said, triggering fear in the city.

Police said, 12-year-old Imran of Rana Town had gone missing on June 1, eight-year-old Ali Hasnain and nine-year-old Salman in August, and eight-year-old Faizan on September 16. Only Faizan’s complete body was recovered, whereas the bones of the remaining two were recovered from sand dunes in the Chunian Industrial Area.

Although only Faizan was identified since his complete body was recovered, the identities of the other two children would be confirmed once the results of the DNA test would be made available.
