KARACHI: Some criminals claiming to be holding Dua Mangi hostage have demanded a hefty ransom of $2.5 lakh (Rs38.8 million) for her release.

Dua Mangi was kidnapped from a car in the Defence Housing Authority on Saturday night by four to five armed people from near a restaurant at Bara Bukhari in Phase VI, DHA. 

The kidnappers also shot and injured her friend Haris Soomro in the resultant altercation in the jurisdiction of Darakshan police station.

According to police sources, the ransom demand was made through WhatsApp from Mangi’s parents. They have contacted the family thrice in the last three days. They insisted on payment of 2.5 lakh USD when they last contacted the girl’s parents on Wednesday. 

Besides the police, intelligence agencies are also investigating the kidnapping incident. 

Despite the efforts the police have absolutely failed even in getting some substantive clues to the incident which has generated a widespread wave of fear among the citizens of the lawless city.
