MANSEHRA:


Four days on, police have failed to find any clues which could help trace three sisters who went missing from the forest of Baghwar village on Thursday.


Pervez, a nomad from Kaghan, told journalists he has been camping with his family, their herd of goats and sheep in Baghar village, Shinkiari for the last one month. He added on Thursday, his daughters Kishwar, 18, Bushra, 15, and Lubna, 8, went to collect firewood near the shrine of Lohar Baba but never returned.


Pervez said he and other family members searched for the girls, but they were nowhere to be found. He said though they have no enmities, his daughter Kishwar had been living with her parents for two months after developing differences with her husband Hameed of Garhi Habibullah village.


Accusing the police of employing delaying tactics, Pervez threatened self-immolation if his daughters were not recovered. The Shinkiari police, on the other hand, said they have registered a case against unidentified kidnappers, adding raids are being carried out for the recovery of the girls.
