PESHAWAR: An 11-year-old-girl was kidnapped from the Wahid Garhi area within the remits of Khazna police station, officials said on Sunday.
A police official told The Express Tribune that the brother of the girl had submitted an application to the Khazana police station, stating that 11-year-old K* had gone to a religious seminary to study the Holy Quran on January 28.
