KARACHI: Investigators probing the kidnapping case of 20-year-old Dua Mangi have failed to resolve the mystery behind the kidnapping and her sudden release. The investigators are still looking to record the statement of the abducted young woman.

The 20-year-old Dua Mangi was kidnapped from Khyaban-e-Bukhari on November 30 by unidentified men when she was with Haris Fateh Soomro, her friend. During the abduction, the kidnappers also shot and critically injured Haris. Later, an FIR was lodged by the Darakhshan police and an investigation team was formed under the supervision of the DIG South, assisted by the Citizens-Police Liaison Committee.

However, Dua Mangi, whose kidnapping a week ago had shocked the entire city, suddenly returned home, in the early hours of Saturday apparently following payment of hefty ransom by the family.

The young woman remains in shock and trauma while investigators are still looking to record her statement. The investigators probing the kidnapping case have failed to resolve the mystery behind the kidnapping and release as the family has already denied reports about paying ransom money to kidnappers while police officials remained tight-lipped on the matter.

On Sunday, it was being reported that Dua Nisar Mangi's kidnappers were involved in a shootout with police officers three days ago in which two policemen of the Aziz Bhatti police station were injured.

The suspects, who were wearing masks at the time, had opened fire on the police vehicle as soon as they saw it. Reports further said that the shells obtained from the encounter matched those that were obtained from the gun of Mangi's kidnappers that was used to shoot her friend, Haris Soomro. However, a senior police official of the Karachi Police when contacted denied such news.
