A teenage girl who was reportedly kidnapped on late Monday night in Noor Abad village near Sukkur was rescued on Tuesday.
Armed men broke into Bhittai Dino’s house, which is located within the jurisdiction of the Salehpat police station, on Monday night and held its occupants hostage at gunpoint.
The culprits fled from the house with Bhittai Dino’s 18-year-old daughter, Zameeran. While talking to journalists, Bhittai Dino accused some members of the Brohi clan.
When the Salehpat police got to know about this, they raided the houses of the Brohi clansmen and rescued the girl. However, the culprits had fled from the village before the police arrived.
The residents of the village said that a few years ago, members from the Katpar clan, which Bhittai Dino belongs to, had kidnapped a Brohi girl. She was returned to her family after elders intervened.
