KARACHI: Despite the passage of four days, Dua Mangi who was kidnapped from the Karachi’s posh locality has not been recovered by the police. In fact, groping in the dark they have not achieved any headway in the case leaving family and friends frustrated.

The police are trying to trace the whereabouts of the suspects and their hideouts. She was kidnapped from a car in the Defence Housing Authority on Saturday night by four to five people who also shot and injured her friend Haris Soomro in the the jurisdiction of Darakshan police station.

The police investigators have yet to record the statement of Dua Mangi’s friend, namely Haris Fateh Soomro who was critically wounded in the incident. Whereas the police wanted to record Soomro’s statement, but the doctors are resisting allowing them to interview him due to his critical condition.

The police are employing geo-fencing to look for more suspects and trying to enlist witnesses to crack the case, but essentially groping in the dark with virtually no headway. People from different walks of life, including students, civil society and political activists, demanding safe recovery of the abducted Dua Mangi, staged a protest at Teen Talwar in Clifton locality on Tuesday evening as the police failed to recover the abducted girl despite passage of 72 hours. A similar protest rally was also held in Shikarpur by cross section of the society protesting against delay in her recovery.

Meanwhile, the Sindh Information and Labour Minister Saeed Ghani claimed on Wednesday that investigators have fond some clues in the case and was hopeful that she will be recovered soon.

Talking in the Geo News morning show, the Sindh Information minister said the media hype of the high-profile criminal case has hampered the investigation. The minister however, conceded that the Sindh government despite lots of efforts has failed to bring under control the resurgent street crimes and other crimes.

Citing a number of reasons for the upturn in the street crimes, Minister Saeed Ghani highlighted bad economy and increasing unemployment as some of the most important factors.
