RAWALPINDI: A man was arrested for his alleged involvement in abductions of minor girls as he tried to kidnap a 13-year-old student from outside her school in the city’s Sir Syed Chowk area on Saturday.
The young student was saved from being abducted by two traffic wardens – Bilal and Kamran – who were deployed at the roundabout.
The suspect, identified as Fawad, approached the girl as she came out of the government school situated within the limits of Waris Khan police station earlier in the day. The victim broke into tears and shouted for help after he forcibly attempted to take her along with him.
The traffic wardens, on hearing the victim’s cries for help, arrived at the scene and arrested the suspect.
The accused and the victim were taken to Waris Khan police station, where they were interrogated by SHO Inspector Malik Muhammad Khan. The girl said she had never seen the suspect before in her life.
Later, she was handed over to her parents with an FIR lodged against the accused.
Further investigation into the suspect’s alleged involvement in other similar cases is underway.
