BREAKING: Dua Mangi recognizes three men who ‘abducted’ her in 2019
Dua Mangi was kidnapped from outside a restaurant in the upscale DHA neighborhood in Karachi
A young law student, Dua Mangi, who became the victim of abduction for ransom, has identified three of her alleged kidnappers during their trial in an anti-terrorism court.
Mangi was kidnapped from outside a restaurant in the upscale DHA neighborhood in Karachi on the 30th of November 2019. Her abductors had also critically wounded her friend Haris Fatah for attempting to save her.
Dua appeared before the ATC-II judge to record her testimony. She was shown the five accused — Fayaz Solangi, Zuhaib Qureshi, Waseem Raja, Muzaffar Ali, and Tariq — held for abduction and injuring her friend.
She identified Qureshi, Ali, and Raja but not the rest of them. Dua said that the three accused were the ones who had bundled her into a car and shot Fatah for trying to foil the kidnapping.
The same suspects are also being questioned in the kidnapping of Bisma Salim, who was abducted from DHA in May 2019 and released afte a ransom was paid. The amount of ransom in both cases is said to be “hefty.”
According to the investigators, both the women were kept at an apartment in Clifton. They said that the forensic report of the weapons recovered from Ali and Qureshi had also matched with the bullet casings found at the crime scene. The car used in the offense was recovered from Solangi.
The same court also recorded the statement of Bisma’s father, Muhammad Salim. He testified that his 20-year-old daughter was kidnapped by these accused men and released Bisma after a ransom payment.
After recording the statements, the court ordered the prosecution to bring more witnesses in Bisma’s and Dua’s cases on the 23rd and 27th of October, respectively.
