ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad police have reunited more than 100 missing or abducted children with their families safely during the last 11 months, said IGP Muhammad Aamir Zulfiqar Wednesday.
According to an official statement, IGP Zulfiqar said the role of Operational Unit of the force was crucial behind this success story. Speaking with the parents of recovered children at Police Lines Headquarters, DIG (Operations) Waqar Uddin Syed, SSP (Headquarters) Irfan Tariq, all Zonal SPs, ASPs of Model Divisions and SDPOs were also present on the occasion.
Police had launched a social media campaign to make parents aware about their responsibilities towards child protection, he added.
The IGP said most of the missing children left homes after being dejected or getting hurt due to harsh attitude of parents. He said no case of conventional kidnapping had been reported during the current year. He appealed to parents to remain aware about the social activities of their children and keep them away from odd company and improper use of social media.
