The police claimed to arrest one of the alleged captors and had shifted him to an undisclosed location for further interrogation into the matter.
In another kidnapping incident involving a person from the medical profession in the city, a doctor kidnapped by unidentified persons on 07 April 2019 from Faisalabad’s Gulistan Colony was recovered in a dramatic manner the next day.
According to details, the doctor was kidnapped outside a local bakery by the culprits. Abductors of Dr Hassan had allegedly demanded Rs5 million as ransom from his brother to release him, police said.
