Shabbir Baloch, the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) for Gulberg, said the missing person case has turned out to not be one of abduction. The investigation-to-date indicates that the girl had called her former fiancé to the parlour to take her with him but when she decided to leave, her younger sister cried for help, alleging that she was being kidnapped.
Upon hearing the sister claiming the bride-to-be was being abducted, people in the area stopped the couple, to which she responded that she was going by her own choice, Baloch added.The DSP also noted that the beauty parlour had no cameras. Police had filed a first information report (FIR) against her former fiancé under the name of bride-to-be’s brother, he said, adding that two of the fiancé’s brothers were taken into custody and moved to the Taimuria police station when authorities raided his residence.
Police, however, have advised the couple to appear in the court and recorded their statements.
The couple has relayed that their lives are in danger, the DSP mentioned, and have asked for security to be provided to them.
