The medical equipment and medicines of the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplant (SIUT), robbed from a vehicle in Hyderabad more than a week ago, have yet to be recovered.
Six armed men kidnapped the employees, Zahid Hussain and Akhtar Ali, along with their vehicle from Hyderabad Bypass on October 14. The employees were freed and the Mazda truck was also abandoned later. The goods were worth Rs1.5 million, SIUT claimed.
However, nine days have passed but the police have yet to register an FIR, confirmed SHO Nasim Nagar Muhammad Qasim Gaad.
Meanwhile, SIUT’s Dr Adeeb Rizvi said, “The police kept our men sitting at the police station for 12 hours but they only registered a non-cognisable offence report.” Hyderabad DIG Naeem Akram Baroka claimed that an FIR has been registered and the police are making headway.
