MITHI: A 31-year-old Ukrainian national allegedly kidnapped three years ago in Rawalpindi was recovered by law enforcement officials from the village of Katho in the limits of the Khensar police station on Sunday.
Senior Superintendent Police Tharparkar district Sarfaraz Nawaz Shaikh told Dawn that a joint team of police and Rangers raided the village and recovered the woman, Katrina, and her suspected kidnapper, Abdul Munaf Nohrio.
Katrina, speaking in broken English and Urdu, told police she was kidnapped in Rawalpindi and then taken to Tharparkar by Munaf.
Munaf’s parents told police their son had married Katrina.
Katrina was not lured to the accused through social media but abducted, Shaikh said, adding that the possibility that other people in Rawalpindi were involved in the kidnapping could not be ruled out.
First Information Report no. 130/2013 had been registered against the alleged abductor at a police station in Mandrah, Shaikh said.
The SSP said the woman and the accused were both handed over to a police team from Rawalpindi and that the matter was being investigated.
