Taimura police started a rescue operation after a citizen, Muhammad Raza Fatimi, lodged an FIR on March 10, saying that his brother, Syed Sibte Anwar Raza Fatimi, had been abducted. In his statement, the complainant said his brother’s wife had sent him pictures showing his brother sitting on the floor of an unknown place, blindfolded and his hands tied.

The sender of the pictures did not demand ransom money, but he told Sibte’s wife that her husband had injured his sister in an accident in Quaidabad’s Future Colony a month and a half ago. As a punishment, he said, he and his brothers had decided that Sibte would marry their sister.

SHO Nawaz Brohi told The News that police retrieved Sibte’s call data record and traced him to a house in New Karachi’s Anda Morr area with the help of a mobile phone locater. A police team reached the house, but the man was not found there.

He added that as the team started a search operation in the locality, he got a call from the police station that Sibte had returned home safely. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Dr Rizwan Ahmed of District Central told The News that police had started an investigation into Sibte’s alleged kidnapping for forcible marriage, but they later learnt that he done faked his own abduction to justify his second marriage.
