ISLAMABAD: As many as three people, including two teenaged students, were allegedly abducted from the capital last week in separate incidents.
The two teenaged students were allegedly kidnapped from Sector I-10.
A Sabzi Mandi police official told The Express Tribune that a 17-year-old boy studying in the 11th-grade had gone missing from Sector I-10 on April 13. His family told police that he had left home shortly before dusk for a coaching academy located in Sector I-10 Markaz but did not return home.

The family suspect that he was kidnapped and lodged a complaint with the Sabzi Mandi police.
Police said they were investigating the case and had obtained the missing boy’s mobile phone record. Moreover, they said that they had questioned the people with whom the boy last had contact before he went missing, but have found no clue yet.
“His mobile phone is still switched off. There is also a possibility that he has gone somewhere of his own accord. However, we are still investigating the case,” a police official said.
The same day, officials said, a 17-year-old girl had gone missing from Sector I-10/1. The family first lodged a missing person report with the police but later submitted a complaint about kidnapping, nominating a man and other potential suspects.

All three kidnapping cases were registered on Saturday.
