Dua Mangi abduction case: Now Trial start from inside the Central Jail

Posted on

KARACHI: Senior police authorities in Karachi have suggested that the Dua Mangi kidnapping case be handled inside the Central Jail Karachi, only days after the primary suspect in the case escaped.

On January 28, two police officers were remanded in police custody, and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah suspended Courts SSP Azam Durrani after it was revealed that the main suspect in the kidnapping of Dua Mangi had fled.

According to the incident’s first information report (FIR), Zohaib Ali Qureshi, one of the accused in the 2019 kidnappings, appeared in court on Thursday. Following the hearing, Qureshi and the police officers escorting him stopped at a mall where the accused “intended to shop,” but he bolted.

The Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Prisons today wrote a letter to the Karachi Deputy Inspector General Prisons, stating that the accused were dangerous individuals and that the trial should take place within the jail.

According to the letter, sending the suspects to court poses security dangers, and the key suspect has already escaped due to the police’ carelessness. “As a result, it is asked that the trial be held within the jail with the authorization of the interior department,” it said.

The Enslavement

Dua Mangi, 22, was taken on November 30, 2019, outside a restaurant in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA).

She was strolling on a nearby street with her companion, Haris Soomro, when the kidnappers came up and threatened them both with a pistol. When the Soomro protested, one of the captors shot him, and the young woman was seized and escaped.

Following that, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) accused five individuals, Muzaffar, Tariq, Zuhaib Qureshi, Waseem Raja, and Fayyaz Qureshi, for allegedly kidnapping Dua and demanding a ransom for her release in January 2021.
