KARACHI: Kidnappers claiming to hold Dua Mangi hostage, demanded a ransom for her release.
Police sources said that the ransom demand was made through a suspected call from the internet from Mangi’s parents. The alleged kidnappers have contacted the family thrice in the last three days, insisting on the payment.
Mangi was abducted from Karachi’s DHA area on Saturday night by armed persons from near a restaurant at Bukhari Commercial in Phase VI.
The kidnappers also shot the victim’s friend Haris Soomro in the resultant altercation, who is currently under treatment at a private hospital where his conditions remain critical.
