SUKKUR: An unarmed woman fought tooth and nail to prevent her daughter from being kidnapped on Sunday near katcha Bunder.
Six armed men forced their way into the house of Nazir Ahmed Mirbahar in his absence and tried to kidnap his 17-year-old daughter Nagina. However, they fled from the scene after Nagina’s mother, Bano, put up a fight and screamed for help.
Bano was beaten badly by the men with wooden sticks and was taken to Civil hospital.
Nazir told The Express Tribune that he has three daughters and three sons. “Nagina is engaged to my nephew, Mukhtiar, but my cousin, Abdul Rehman Mirbahar, has been forcing me to choose his son instead.”
Nazir alleged that his cousin, along with Shabaan Mirbahar, Mehram Mirbahar and three others, barged into the house while he was at work to kidnap his daughter. However, Bano could not identify the men.
