Khiwagar, a resident of Matta tehsil, reported his 20-year-old daughter was missing, whose name has been kept confidential by the police. According to Muhammad Zahid, an official of Matta police, Khiwagar accused Barkat Ali, his daughter’s 25-year-old nephew, of kidnapping her a month ago.

After a month of searching, the father reported his daughter kidnapped. Police have filed the case and investigation has commenced.
